Big Brothers Big Sisters has been operating in Australia for over 40 years and proudly part of an internationally recognised mentoring organisation. BBBS is founded on a long-term mentoring model; young people aged 7-17 years, in need of a positive role model, are matched with a screened and trained volunteer mentor and meet at least weekly for a minimum of 12 months (though many matches continue on for many years, even for life). This model equips young people with the tools they need to build resilience and strengthen their emotional wellbeing. Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring programs provide a safe and supportive space for our next generation to foster a sense of belonging and self-worth. The stability offered over the mentoring relationship enables young people to develop the skills, abilities, attitudes and confidence they need to help them plan for and adapt to their external environment, overcome adverse experiences, and practically manage their own mental health. Our vision is for young people to have the opportunity to unlock their potential, creating a brighter future for themselves and their community.
