About BIG BROTHERS/BIG SISTERS OF ST THOMAS - ELGIN
We can all cast our minds back through time to identify the person who made a difference for us just when we needed it most. Often those relationships were with adults who were part of our lives through family, community or school connections. Big Brothers/Big Sisters of St.Thomas-Elgin has taken those informal mentoring relationships and structured a process to engineer similar outcomes. We believe our volunteers who are matched within our community based mentoring programs and our volunteers matched within our school based mentoring programs are making a difference in the lives of the children and youth they mentor.
