Imagine a world with more self-esteem and less bullying. Imagine a world where youth are reminded that they be anything they can dream of. You can be a part of creating that world. All you have to do is volunteer!

September is Big Brothers Big Sisters Month

Did you know that when a child is mentored through Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland, the odds they will succeed economically and socially increase dramatically. They are 17% more likely to be employed, 63% more likely to earn a post secondary education, and 80% more likely to live a healthy lifestyle. In fact, for every dollar invested in mentoring, $18 to $23 is returned back to society.

Imagine being the fun parent all the time—that’s what Christy had in mind when she signed up to be a Big Sister. She made the choice to not have kids, but still wanted to give back to someone younger. She loves being a Big Sister because she gets to be the “cool mom” once a week and hang out with her awesome Little Sister, Eleanor. They love cooking together and they have big plans for the future.

Big Brothers Big Sisters can help many young Canadians achieve more but they need your support to build capacity. Too many kids are missing an opportunity of their lifetime. Please donate or volunteer for Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland. Imagine who they will become because of you.
