I have lived in the Greater Vancouver Area for a minimum of 6 months.
I understand the application process can take up to approximately 2 months to complete. Once accepted as a Volunteer, being matched with a school with the Game On program can take several weeks, depending on the date, location, and other preferences.
I can easily manage the time commitment in my schedule
I will submit my Police Information Check – Vulnerable Sector form to my local Police/RCMP station as soon as possible, and if necessary will follow up with any concerns.
Submit An Application
You may choose to apply online or you may contact our agency and we can send you an application in the mail or through email.
After we receive your application form and all the requirements are met, we will provide you with a Police Information Check – Vulnerable Sector form.
Submit A Police Information Check – Vulnerable Sector
You must submit your Police Information Check – Vulnerable Sector forms immediately as we require that you complete a new record check before we will consider you for an interview.
As per our National Standards, we must receive a new Police Information Check – Vulnerable Sector form solely for our organization.
Once we receive your Police Information Check – Vulnerable Sector form results and you meet our requirements, we will contact you to schedule a one-on-one interview. The interview lasts approximately one to two hours and consists of a series of questions related to your motivation, beliefs and values, interests and lifestyle, and family history.
Please note that only those applicants that meet our requirements will be contacted for an interview. Contact will be made only after we receive your Police Information Check – Vulnerable Sector results.
Your references are adults who have known you well for more than two years and who represent different facets of your life: your employer, a family member/significant other, personal references and someone who has witnessed you working (paid or voluntarily) with children.
Training is a one time, 3.5 hour session at the Big Brothers office and is flexible depending on your schedule.
Start Your Program
Based on your availability and location, you will be matched at a site and paired with one or two other mentors, with whom you will facilitate your weekly sessions.
