Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Okanagan

Objective: Every child in Canada who needs a mentor has a mentor.

The not-for-profit organization provides caring and responsible adult role models, primarily for children from single-parent families. We match boys and girls to carefully screened, trained and monitored volunteers who provide guidance, support and friendship. A Big Brother, Big Sister or Big Couple mentor spends quality one-on-one time with a child who needs some additional adult attention. They play sports together, go to a movie, try out new things, or just hang out and build friendships while exploring recreation opportunities around town.

The Vernon BBBS agency provides support to families from Salmon Arm to Lumby.
