Thank you, Sask Egg!
The In School Mentoring program provides children and youth in elementary school with a role model, a friend to talk with and someone to share the experiences of growing up.
For one hour, once a week, during the duration of the school year, Mentors and Mentees meet together. They engage in activities to help build the Mentee’s self-esteem. They do not meet outside of school, over the summer break or during school holidays.
The worldwide proclaimed COVID-19 pandemic forced a critical response from Big Brothers Big Sisters’ staff and volunteers in regards to limitation of the schools that engage in our In School Mentoring program.
Mentors and Mentees now participate in virtual mentoring to ensure they are still able to connect. This response ensures we deliver a safe, secure, private, and supported environment for mentors and mentees to meet over the web.
