Our Mission

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Moose Jaw makes a positive difference in the lives of youth, by developing and implementing a broad range of mentoring programs for both in-school and outside of school. 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. Each time we pair a child with a mentor, we start something incredible. A life changing relationship built on friendship, trust, and empowerment.

A Message From Our Executive Director

Every child deserves the opportunity to grow into the best person they can be, regardless of gender and socioeconomic status. We aim to help every child reach their potential through access to mentorship.

A mentor is someone who brings out the best in you, not because they need to, but because they want to. A mentor leads by example, knows how to have fun, and most importantly, creates a genuine friendship with a mentee.

By learning the right life skills, children can grow up to be amazing friends, invaluable employees, and thoughtful community members. This betters our communities as a whole. Leading to a reduction in poverty and unemployment, better academic performance, and more life opportunities.

Every young person that comes through our doors is here to shape their own story. Our staff, volunteers and donors are all committed to making that story the best version of itself. And we hear a lot of stories around here. It’s the story of a young person transforming from shy and hesitant to confident and calculated. It’s the child who experiences a true friendship and finds self worth for the first time. Or it’s the child who discovers a new passion that sparks a level of optimism they didn’t know was possible.

Big Brothers Big Sisters stories hinge on the positive experiences that everyone involved with us brings through our doors. We are forever grateful for our generous donors, passionate staff, and enthusiastic volunteers. You’re the ones that are bringing these stories to life. You’re the ones out there making it possible to make a difference through mentoring. And for that, I thank you.
