We’re Canada’s leading child and youth mentoring organization, and we’re committed to creating life-changing relationships that inspire and empower youth. At BBBSO, we believe in helping youth reach their potential. We started by matching Bigs (our mentors) with Littles (our mentees) in the 1970s, and since then, we’ve grown to offer a range of amazing programs to serve any youth who want a mentor.

 

Igniting Potential

Mentoring relationships change young people’s lives. Strong personal connections with a consistent and dedicated mentor help youth feel safe, supported and connected.
