About Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ottawa

Since 1970, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ottawa has been creating strong relationships between Bigs and Littles. Through mentorship we change the course of young lives.

Mentors in our programs are role models that teach by example. The importance of giving back, education, respect for family, peers, and the community engagement are all taught through these life-changing friendships.

The transformation of a child into a confident, inspired, and motivated young person is truly something amazing. Our staff and volunteers take incredible pride in not only the role they play, but in how these children step into their own.

For more than one hundred years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has used mentoring programs to make a positive difference in the lives of our nation’s youth. Our transformative relationships enable and empower children and youth to reach their full potential as individuals and citizens.
