Big Brothers and Big Sisters would like to thank the Canadian Western Bank for their generous contribution of $7,500 in support of our mentoring program. These funds will assist with volunteer recruitment, screening, orientation and training, as well as pre-match training for mentees and ongoing match support and supervision.

Potential benefits for a mentee from having a mentoring relationship include:

  • Improved attendance at school.
  • Improved relationships with other children, youth and families.
  • Increased positive, healthy choices and enhanced self-esteem.
  • Increased civic engagement and employment.
  • Improved social and cognitive skills.
  • Reduction of anxiety, depression and conduct problems.

Thank You to our friends at Canadian Western Bank.  This is your place to make a difference.
