Since 1971, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Regina & Area has been making a positive difference in the lives of Regina’s youth by developing and implementing a broad range of mentoring programs for both in-school and outside of school. 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. Each time we pair a child with a mentor, we start something incredible. A life changing relationship built on friendship, trust, and empowerment.



Program Description

Community Mentoring Program
- For a small commitment of only 2-4 hours a week, you can hang out with a child that needs a mentor. There are always children in Regina waiting for a mentor, so we encourage you to apply today. After the enrolment process, we’ll provide training and match you with a child who shares your interests. It’s up to you and your mentee to decide when to get together, and what you do! You could go hiking, biking, play video games, watch a movie, listen to music, or cook! Children are always willing to try new activities and learn new skills. Come up with a list, and try new things together!

In School Mentoring Program
- In School Mentoring is our fastest growing program. It involves spending one hour a week with one child, doing non-academic activities in the child’s school. It’s about being someone a child can talk to and learn from – sharing interests with them, encouraging them, building on their strengths, all of which can lead to improved self-esteem and a more positive outlook on their life.

Big Group Activity Events
- Our Big Group Activities program acts as an innovative approach to serving youth and their families on our waitlist and matches. With an average wait-time of 1 + years, the project primarily targets our waitlisted youth by providing social, educational, cultural and creative based activities, while they wait for a 1:1 mentoring relationship. It will connect youth and families to supportive staff that aim to foster positive relationships and engagement during their journey through our services.
