About This Campaign
Campaign to Support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kamloops & Region
As Canada’s leading child and youth mentoring charity, Big Brothers Big Sisters facilitates life-changing relationships that inspire and empower children and youth to reach their potential, both as individuals and citizens. OUR HISTORY IN KAMLOOPS Big Brothers was organized in Kamloops in 1963, and in 1969, it was granted a charter and became a chapter of Big Brothers of BC. Then, in 1978, the Kamloops chapter became a society and thus incorporated under the Societies Act. It wasn't until 1984 that the Big Sisters program was incorporated and we became Big Brothers Big Sisters. The agency continues to grow: in 1991, we made our first Couples match; in 1995, the In-School Mentoring Program began; in 2003, the Aboriginal Mentoring Component was added; and in 2012, we launched the Sports Mentorship Program. If you are thinking about becoming a mentor, please call Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kamloops & Region at 250-374-6134 or go to bbbskamloops.ca and Start Something.
