Big Brothers Big Sisters of Fredericton and Oromocto is celebrating 50 years of mentoring children. The Kiwanis Club of Fredericton, in honour of Canada's Centennial in 1967, established and supported a Big Brother Program " aimed at the recruiting of suitably qualified volunteer men willing to accept the responsibilities of Big Brothers through a planned program of friendship and guidance to all boys where the need exists"( from original press release in September 1966).
Over the years we have added Big Sisters, In School Mentors and Big Couples to our agencies programs in order to more effectively serve children needing a mentor.
We are planning a special event on September 28 to celebrate this important milestone and would like to contact former Bigs, Littles, Parents, Board Members, and Staff. Please send your telephone number and/or your email address to bigbrothersbigsisters.ca. Rhonda can also be reached at 458-8941.
Big Brothers Big Sisters Fredericton and Oromocto was awarded the Jim Gilbert's Wheels and Deals Not-For-Profit award at the Fredericton Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Award Ceremony in 2014. We could not be prouder of this achievement and would like to thank all those involved with the award process.
At Big Brothers Big Sisters, we appreciate all supporters, from donors to volunteers to advocates. We believe that changing the course of young lives can in turn change our community’s future.
Your donations help us make and sustain matches between Bigs and Littles - and instantly make you a part of our family.
With your help we raised $40,930 in 2016
