Big Brothers Big Sisters Of Lethbridge and District
We are making a positive difference in the lives of youth by developing and implementing a wide range of mentoring programs. Serving as role models, our mentors teach by example the importance of giving and giving back, of staying in school, and of having respect for family, peers, and community.
We make a difference by providing professional, trained staff to carefully screen volunteers and match them in long-term, safe mentoring relationships while providing necessary ongoing management and support for the volunteers, children, and families all free of charge.
In 2022, we continued to serve and create life-changing mentoring relationships for over 1016 children in Lethbridge and surrounding communities.
We acknowledge that the City of Lethbridge is located within the sacred geography of the Niitsitapii peoples, now known as the Blackfoot Confederacy, who make part of the Treaty 7 Nations. We also recognize the diverse population of Aboriginal peoples who now call Lethbridge home and the contributions these Aboriginal peoples have made in shaping and strengthening our community in the past, present, and in the future. We, as people living and benefiting from Blackfoot Confederacy traditional territory, honour the traditions of people who have cared for this land since time immemorial.
All young people realize their full potential.
To enable life – changing mentoring relationships to ignite the power and potential of young people.
