Big Brothers Big Sisters of Calgary and Area

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Calgary and Area is a donor supported, volunteer driven organization recognized for mentoring programs for children and youth in Calgary, Airdrie, Cochrane, High River and surrounding areas.

We match caring volunteers called Bigs with a young person 6 to 18 years old called a Little. Bigs and Littles are carefully matched based on personality, shared interests and common experiences. There are a variety of programs available to meet volunteer availability, interests and location. To ensure the safety of Littles, our volunteers are thoroughly screened and trained. We also provide ongoing professional support to foster the success of mentoring relationships.

All children benefit from having a positive adult role model in their lives, and the impact of mentor in these early years will last a lifetime. Mentorship positively impacts the lives of young people by improving their self-esteem, relationships with others, educational aspirations and hope for the future.
