The funding granted by Coast Capital Savings addresses the needs of at-risk children by helping Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver (BBGV) maintain high program standards, recruit and train urgently needed volunteer mentors, and maintain the quality of our staff Mentoring Coordinators who oversee and monitor the mentoring matches.
The mission of BBGV is to enhance children’s social and emotional development by delivering and advocating for the highest quality, prevention-based mentoring programs.
Their funding supports:
Our Teen Mentoring Program matches male and female volunteers (high school students) with elementary school kids. Big and Little Buddies spend 1 hour a week on school grounds engaging in one-to-one age-appropriate activities.
We are sincerely grateful for the support we have received from Coast Capital Savings. Their funding takes us one step closer to putting a mentor into the life of every child who needs one.
