About Big Brothers Big Sisters Saskatoon

Why Big Brothers Big Sisters

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Saskatoon enables life-changing mentoring relationships to ignite the power and potential of young people facing adversity. We carefully and intentionally place an additional, consistent and supportive mentor in these young people’s lives.

Volunteer mentors are intentionally recruited based on the needs of local youth and are professionally screened. The mentor, mentee, and family receive training and are monitored and supported by a designated professional caseworker. Youth and their families also receive access to opportunities through BBBSS supporters such as tickets to events, outdoor clothing, technology, and holiday hampers.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Saskatoon has been creating life-changing matches for almost 50 years. Our agency serves over 400 young people annually in our mentoring programs to enhance children’s lives and support families in Saskatoon. Every day in a child’s life is crucial, they shouldn’t have to wait for the help they need to reach their full potential.

Our Impact

The Mentoring Effect

Potential. It exists in every child. Yet many children and youth struggle with societal barriers and face adversities such as poverty, family instability, and identity-based discrimination. These adversities can negatively impact a young person’s future.

With the support of professional, qualified Big Brothers Big Sisters staff, mentors form deep one-to-one relationships with their mentees that strengthen their social emotional learning and executive functioning skills, ensuring they develop into resilient young people who are able to overcome life’s adversities, and lead productive and healthy lives.

The evidence is clear. When we provide young people facing adversity with a committed mentor, we are decreasing their risk and igniting their potential.

Every $1 invested in our programming returns between $23 to society through taxes, higher incomes, volunteerism, and charitable donations.
