Do you know a boy who could benefit from having a Big Brother? The Big Brothers Program serves boys aged 7-14 who have limited-to-no contact with positive male role models. They are matched with adult male Volunteers who commit to spending 2-4 hours a week for a minimum of one year with their Little Brothers, providing friendship, guidance and support.
Any boy between the ages of 7 and 14 who could benefit from a positive male role model who does not display any significant physical, emotional or behavioural challenges will be considered. If there is regular contact with the boy’s father, a close male relative, a partner or someone from another agency, the program may not be appropriate for your son.
To make the relationship work, your child must be interested in having a Big Brother and you must be willing to co-operate with the agency and its guidelines.
If your child is not eligible to be matched at this time, please visit Redbook 211 for other resources in your area.
