Big Brothers Big Sisters of North and West Niagara is calling on community members to step up and become volunteers with the agency. For as little as one hour a week you can become a mentor and have a life-changing impact.
Big Brothers Big Sisters relies on volunteers to deliver mentorship programs to children and youth between the ages of 6 and 18 years of age. In early 2019, the agency had over 300 volunteers as mentors for over 1,000 children. Over the last few years as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, their volunteer pool has shrunk and less new volunteers are signing up to get involved. The agency is looking to recruit close to 100 volunteers to meet the anticipated demand for mentorship programs during the 2022/2023 school year.
If community members do not come forward to volunteer, the number of children and youth waiting to experience life-changing mentorship will continue to grow.
