27 children waiting for a Big Sister or Big Brother

Executive director asking community members to consider volunteering with BBBSQ

Big Sister Trina and Little Sister Larissa enjoy a little dragon boating.

Big Brothers Big Sisters is asking for caring individuals to consider becoming a Big Brother or Big Sister to one of the 27 children currently hoping for a special friend in their life.

After a screening and training process, a volunteer can share fun activities with a young person and be a kid again.

The agency provides support and monitoring throughout the match.

There are so many children in our program that would appreciate and benefit from a one to one friendship and the opportunity to experience new adventures.

Even though each of the children is special with their own unique personality and interests, they have the same wish – to have a Big Brother or Big Sister.  Do you have a Little time for a ‘Little?’ Think BIG for your New Year’s Resolution. Consider becoming a mentor.

Our group enjoyed a great time at the matinee last week.  Thank you to Carib Theatre.  We would also like to thank Community Policing and the City of Quesnel for funding this fun event.

The Christmas bags were greatly appreciated by the Little Brothers and Little Sisters.  Thank you also to Northern Strike Paintball for donating toys and games for the bags.

Many people and groups have donated generously
