ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION:

A word from les Grands Frères, Grandes Soeurs de la Montérégie:

We match young people facing adversity with trained adult mentors in 1-1 or group mentoring programs. Mentoring is an important way to give youth experience with these essential back-and-forth relationships, developing them into healthy young people better able to deal with and overcome life's adversities.
The trauma from adverse childhood experiences can last a lifetime and can define a lifetime without early intervention. But we can help prevent the physical and mental effects that childhood trauma can lead to. At Big Brothers Big Sisters, we champion the health and well-being of youth by stepping in before it's too late to give every child a chance to reach their full potential.
