Big Brothers Big Sisters of Peel York
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Peel York creates individual and group mentoring relationships amongst adults and youth. Mentorship is a two-way, learning and development partnership where the young person’s needs are placed at the centre. Because young people’s brains are still developing, mentoring can support that process through back-and-forth interaction like the volley in a good game of ping-pong. Mentoring is an important way to give youth experience with these essential back-and-forth relationships, developing them into healthy young people better able to deal with and overcome life’s adversities.
