To build, strengthen and promote positive relationships between youth, adults and families by facilitating positive and rewarding mentoring relationships within our community. Community-based mentoring is the traditional Big Brothers Big Sisters relationship. It happens after school or on the weekend. It’s all about an adult volunteer (over 18) and a young person (aged between 5 and 18) spending one-to-one time together doing things they both enjoy – one or more hours a week. Most sessions take place in the community, at a library, a park, the beach or at other free facilities. When Big Brothers Big Sisters partners a young person with a role model, we start something special: a one-to-one relationship built on trust and friendship that can blossom into a future of unlimited potential.
Work alongside and support our mentor coordinators by taking the initial enquires and referrals for young people and mentors wishing to join the Big Brothers Big Sisters Programme. Help make a difference for our youth.
Volunteer mentors can be aged from 18 to 80. You will spend an hour or more a week providing support to a child who needs a friend.
