Sup­port­ing Our Com­mu­nity, Mak­ing a Dif­fer­ence

Lethbridge Herald - - GREAT READS | SATURDAY BOOKS -

Big Broth­ers Big Sis­ters of Leth­bridge and Dis­trict has been serv­ing chil­dren and youth in our com­mu­nity since 1973. Our or­ga­ni­za­tion makes a pos­i­tive dif­fer­ence in the lives of youth by im­ple­ment­ing a wide range of men­tor­ing pro­grams. Chil­dren and par­ents come to Big Broth­ers Big Sis­ters be­cause they are seek­ing an­other pos­i­tive adult role model in their child’s life. Our or­ga­ni­za­tion has seen sig­nif­i­cant growth over the last few years serv­ing over 500 kids in 2017 and over 600 kids in 2018. So many kids are wait­ing for a Men­tor! We have over 100 chil­dren wait­ing to be matched. Vol­un­teer Men­tors are matched with chil­dren and they spend time to­gether each week. Matches are made based on com­pat­i­bil­ity. The main goal of a match is to have fun, and build a friend­ship. Chil­dren are pro­vided with op­por­tu­ni­ties that they wouldn’t have other­wise. Chil­dren and vol­un­teers gain a sense of com­mu­nity, a new friend, and a chance to make a dif­fer­ence. Con­sider sign­ing up for a Big Broth­ers Big Sis­ters pro­gram to­day! You will en­joy go­ing to the movies, kick­ing a soc­cer ball, at­tend­ing a hockey game, mak­ing arts and crafts, cook­ing and bak­ing, or go­ing for a walk in the river bot­tom, and you will re­mem­ber what it’s like to be a kid! If you are in­ter­ested in be­com­ing a Big Brother or Big Sis­ter please drop by our of­fice to pick up an ap­pli­ca­tion at 622 6 Ave. S. or visit
