Mission: We commit to understand and respond to the needs of young people in our communities with relevant volunteer based mentoring programs.
Vision Statement: Every child who needs a mentor has a mentor.
We believe every child should have the opportunity to reach his or her full potential, both as individuals and citizens – that by doing so, they will not only do well, they will also do good.
We believe that by changing the course of young lives we can in turn be changing the course of a community’s future. That it could lead to a reduction in poverty and unemployment. Or to safer schools and neighbourhoods. Or to a renewed optimism for growth. That it could even lead to change on a broader, more far-reaching scale.
We believe that opening a child’s eyes to what is – opens their mind to what could be.
Since 1972, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Saint John has been making a positive difference in the lives of Southwestern New Brunswick’s youth by developing and implementing a wide range of mentoring programs. One-to-one and group programs, for both in school and outside of school.
We’re Big Brothers Big Sisters, and we believe in the value and values of mentoring.
