Big Brothers Mentor
Ongoing Opportunity (> 1 year)
Description of PositionOver 53 children and youth in the Cowichan Valley are waiting to be matched with a mentor. The demand for male volunteers is especially high. Making that impact and changing a child’s future takes less time than you think.
The Big Brothers Mentoring program provides boys and young men with a role model and a friend to talk to and share the experiences of growing up with. Through regular outings, a relationship is developed between the mentor and the mentee, that is built on trust and common interests, and is supported by our experienced case-workers. The result is a life-changing experience for both the volunteer and the child.
The Big Brothers Mentoring program usually requires two regularly scheduled outings a month of several hours each and a minimum of 1 year committment.
The program strives to do the following:
provide a role model and a friend for boys and young men.
promote the importance of staying in school and healthy relationships with family and peers.
instill trust and self-confidence in order to make healthy decisions.
encourage leadership skills and independent thinking.
and above all, make a difference while having fun.
