In-School Mentoring is a one-to-one encouragement program for boys and girls in grades 1-7. A child and his/her Big Buddy meet for one hour a week at the child’s elementary school to play games and sports, do arts and crafts, or just hang out and talk. Volunteers commit to a minimum of one year (but they do not meet over the summer break or during other school holidays).

Any elementary school aged child who could benefit from a positive male or female role model who does not display any significant physical, emotional or behavioural challenges will be considered.
This program is a co-operative effort between school boards, local businesses and Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver. It is currently in place in select schools within the districts of Burnaby, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, North Vancouver, Surrey, and Vancouver.
