Opportunity Description:

At Big Brothers Big Sisters, we match children and youth facing adversity with a caring adult who we call a “Big.” Many of the kids we serve are newcomers to Canada. Having a Canadian mentor can make a big difference for a young person who is trying to adjust to a new life here. The parents of these children need a similar type of support. Many of them don’t have a network of friends or family nearby. Once you have been enrolled and trained to be a New Horizons Mentor, you will be paired with a newcomer parent. You will connect with them once a week over the phone, by email or in person. These weekly check-ins will help the newcomer individual feel less alone and more connected to their community. You will be well supported by the Big Brothers Big Sisters staff as you build your relationship. As a New Horizons Mentor, it is important that you have lived experience as a parent. If you were once a newcomer yourself, this would be an asset but it is not mandatory. Become a friend who helps someone to be the best that they can be in their new home country!
