Children and teenagers growing up alongside problems such as domestic violence, poverty, identity issues, etc. need a mentor more than anyone else, and left to their own devices, may not get one.

Meet Our Group of the Month

Our featured group this month, Big Brothers Big Sisters Canada, carefully matches them with just the right mentors to provide support and guidance, broadening their experiences and giving them a consistent and trustworthy confidante.  These young people gain confidence and grow into their full potential.

 

 

After 18 months of spending time with their Big Brothers and Big Sisters, the children in the BBBS program–compared to children not in the program–were:

  • 46% less likely to start using drugs
  • 27% less likely to start drinking alcohol
  • 52% less likely to skip school
  • 37% less likely to skip a class
  • 33% less likely to engage in physical violence

Every $1 invested in Big Brothers Big Sisters returns $18 – 23 to society.

September 2017 Video of the Month

September

2,000 people commit suicide worldwide everyday. How do you know if someone close to you is considering suicide? What can you do to help prevent suicide?

We cover these questions and more in our 4-minute video this month.

 

Very Short Summary (In which amazing details are missing that you’ll have to get by watching our awesome video above!):

1. This month is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month.

  • Every year, almost one million people die from suicide; a “global” mortality rate of 16 per 100,000, or one death every 40 seconds. Suicide accounts for more loss of life in the world than the total number of deaths from war, acts of terrorism and homicide combined.
