Big Brothers Big Sisters Month

Official ProclamationSeptember marks Big Brothers Big Sisters Month, a time to commemorate and celebrate the work and efforts of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Toronto (BBBST) and the staff and volunteers that change lives every day.

Mentoring Matters because children enrolled with Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring are more likely to graduate high school and obtain a post-secondary education. They are more likely to be happier, healthier and more confident later in life compared to their peers that did not receive mentoring.

Join Big Brothers Big Sisters across Canada and tell others why #MentoringMatters to you!
