Big Couples is a program where a couple
(aged 25+) is matched to a Little in their community for double the fun and
mentorship. We match a stable adult couple with a Little, working to ensure
they have similar likes and interests.
We ask our volunteers to
give a year commitment to this program.
Married or common Law partners who want to volunteer
together in a mentoring capacity, can benefit from the opportunity to
participate in this program. This program is designed for couples who wish to
make a difference in the life of a child who needs a mentor and can benefit
from a friendship that is healthy and stable.
Couples would be required to spend approximately 2 hours per
week or 4 hours bi-weekly in outings with the child. During the outings the
couples and child will do fun and enriching activities around the city that
will help develop their mentoring relationship.
The child will benefit from not only one but two mentors
which will ensure the consistency and reliability of the friendship.
If you are interested in applying to this program with your
significant other, you must be:
- Over 25 years old
- Be in the relationship for at least two years
- Have lived together for at least one year
Each person submits an individual volunteer application and indicates their interest in Couples Mentoring, along with their partner's name on the application.
