Non-mentoring Volunteer Opportunities
In addition to being a mentor, Big Brothers offer a number of volunteer opportunities for people interested in special events, fundraising, and administration. Share your talents, passion, and energy as you help children in the community!
Program Volunteer (Adult)
The Program Volunteer will support a Mentoring Coordinator with facilitating after-school Teen program sessions. These programs take place at various schools across Greater Vancouver. This exciting role will enable volunteers to develop strong leadership and communication skills, as well as contribute to the success of the agency’s mentoring programs.

The areas span across the Lower Mainland. We are looking to fill spots ASAP! Sign up online or for more information email Wes at email@example.com
Join our Speakers’ Circle and speak to people about your experience as a mentor with Big Brothers. Speaking opportunities include corporate lunch and learns, volunteer and community fairs, fundraising events and more. Once you’ve expressed interest in becoming a part of our Speakers’ Circle, you will receive emails from time to time with speaking/event opportunities. To claim an engagement, all you have to do is reply to let us know you’d like to speak at the event. Speakers training will be available to those who would like to have it. Some events that our Speakers’ Circle members attended or presented at earlier this year include; SFU Volunteer fairs, UBC Mini We Day Conference, UBC Varsity Club Talent Show, Roundhouse Radio Live interview, Griffith’s Boxing Fundraiser, etc. Click here for details on these opportunities.
