About Us

At Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ingersoll, Tillsonburg & Area, we believe that every child should have the opportunity to reach their full potential, both as individuals and as citizens—and that by doing so, they will not only lead a healthier and more productive life but will also give back to their communities. For more than 40 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has been making a positive difference in the lives of local youth by developing and implementing a wide range of evidence-based mentoring programs. Our work is done one-on-one and in groups, in school and outside of school, and online.

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. Our mentor enrollment process and thoughtful matching process lead to powerful connections between our “Mentors” and “Mentees.” Each time we pair a child with a mentor or introduce a group of students to an in-school program, we start something incredible— a life-changing relationship built on friendship, trust and empowerment. Research has demonstrated that our mentoring programs have dramatic and measurable impacts on the lives of young people, including decreases in risky behaviour and violence, and increases in positive civic engagement.

Last year, we helped 240 children realize their potential through our many diverse mentoring programs. Our agency is part of a federated structure, and are supported by the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada national office. In 2013 we successfully completed the National Accreditation Program to ensure the highest quality of programs and services for the communities we are proud to serve. Whether it’s in the form of time or money, we believe there is no more important investment we can make than in helping Canada’s young people realize—and share—their full potential.
