The trauma from adverse childhood experiences can last a lifetime. Without intervention they will define a lifetime.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of London and Area has championed youth health and wellbeing for over 50 years, stepping in before it’s too late so all children can reach their full potential. We do this through our mentoring programs that match children facing adversity (Littles) with a caring adult volunteer (Bigs).
Our Bigs and Littles spend time with each other on a weekly basis doing things they both enjoy. The bond they develop during their weekly visits helps the Littles build self-esteem and make more connections in the community. Most importantly, it inspires them to dream BIG.
