Could you be a Big Brother or Big Sister?

Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Fraser Valley

We have two 12-year-old boys in #MissionBC who have been waiting for a Big Brother since early 2014 – that’s three long years waiting for a male role model. Do you know anyone who would be a great Big Brother to these boys

Kyle* enjoys go-karting, swimming, bowling, movies, and is an avid reader. He’d love to visit Castle Fun Park with a Big Brother. His mom hopes he will build a trusting relationship with a man and learn that “not all men are bad.” He is funny, sarcastic, smart, sensitive, and likes making people laugh.

Ben* says, “I need a guy around” as his father is not part of his life. He would love for a Big Brother to take him fishing. He enjoys movies, swimming, BMX biking, origami, laser tag, sports, and hiking.

Both of these boys love video games, but we hope a Big Brother will help them get outdoors and active more often. They are reaching an age where they are starting to notice girls and their moms hope to get some male perspective on approaching this topic!

Please spread the word – three years is too long!
