For 50 years locally, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Waterloo Region has been making a positive difference in the lives of our Region’s youth by developing and implementing a wide range of mentoring programs.

Serving as role models, our mentors teach by example the importance of giving back, of staying in school and of having respect for family, peers and the community. 

Each time we pair a child with a mentor or introduce a group of students to an in-school program, we start something incredible – a life-changing relationship built on friendship, trust and empowerment.

On-line registration through the Running Room is open until Wednesday, October 4/17 at midnight.
