ABOUT BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Calgary and Area is a donor-supported, volunteer-driven organization founded on mentoring as a proven strategy for ensuring resiliency, future orientation and social support for children and youth.

For over 20 years, they have been making a positive difference in the lives of young people through a wide range of one-to-one and group mentoring programs, both in school and in the community. Founded in 1994 with the merger of Uncles at Large, Aunts at Large and Big Sisters of Calgary, BBBS Calgary and Area currently serves over 1,600 young people and volunteers in Calgary, Airdrie, Cochrane, High River and Okotoks.

Their mentoring programs combine passion with patience, empathy and a generous spirit that encourages real connections to form. Serving as role models, BBBS mentors teach by example the importance of giving and giving back, of staying in school and of having respect for family, peers and community. These mentoring relationships challenge and support young people, allowing them to realize they have the ability to succeed and make life-changing decisions.
