Volunteer Opportunities are happening now with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Victoria Capital Region! We have a few single-event volunteer opportunities coming up, as well as volunteer positions that require a longer time commitment.

For over 20 years we have operated a Social Enterprise to raise funds for our mentoring programs. This Social Enterprise provides a valued service in recycling through the collection and repurposing of donated goods.

Are you looking to make a difference within your community?

Volunteers with Big Brothers Big Sisters are essential in reaching our funding goals for our life-changing child and youth mentoring programs. As a volunteer, you will gain experience engaging with the community while also being provided with opportunities to expand your network and boost your social skills. Thanks to you, youth in our community can be empowered to reach their full potential!
