The funding granted by TELUS addresses the needs of at-risk children by helping Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver maintain high program standards, recruit and train urgently needed Volunteer mentors, and maintain the quality of our staff Mentoring Coordinators who oversee and monitor 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 RedFox Aboriginal program jointly trains Aboriginal youth through the Youth Warriors Program to be leaders and mentors. Then these youth help out in The RedFox community active play programs, which offer youth interactive play sessions that promote healthy lifestyles and physical literacy skills.
We are sincerely grateful for the support we have received from TELUS. Their funding takes us one step closer to putting a mentor into the life of every child who needs one.
