  Canterbury Child Welfare Volunteering Family Support

Our program matches a volunteer Big Brother or Big Sister with a child who could benefit from a one-to-one relationship with a caring adult. Mentors and the young person they are matched with meet a few times a month, for a couple of hours each time, at places and times convenient to both. The two share similar interests, and they spend their time engaged in activities such as kicking a ball around, watching movies, visiting the museum, cheering on a local sports team or simply hanging out.

Children who spend time with a mentor gain confidence, acquire new skills and competencies and develop an enhanced capacity to care for others.

Mentors experience a sense of discovery and enjoyment as they see a world of possibilities opened up through the child’s eye.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of North Canterbury works closely with local social service agencies including the local police.
