What we do

Our volunteers represent a diversity of backgrounds, experiences, abilities, and identities, just like the families that we serve. We welcome volunteers, children, and families of all sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions, including transgender and gender-fluid individuals.

Between our different mentoring programs and those of our sister organization, Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland, we are committed to finding the right fit for you.

If you’re looking to volunteer, we’re thrilled that you are interested in mentoring a child or youth in your community! Before you get started, you should know that you are not alone – you are joining hundreds of volunteers who are already building BIG friendships. You’ll also have the support of professional caseworkers who are here to support you with training and regular check-ins.

Child safety and finding the right match between “Bigs” and “Littles” are our top priorities – that’s why our application form and screening process is so detailed. Our volunteers tell us that finding the right match is worth the effort and patience.
