Big Brothers Big Sisters of Dufferin & District

At Big Brothers Big Sisters of Dufferin we match children facing adversity with caring adult mentors. The results are life changing relationships that allow children to reach their fullest potential. During COVID our program are in demand more than ever, as children struggle with a lack of social connection and mental health concerns.

During this time, we have altered the way we do things to ensure our vital programs continue to run while following Provincial safety rules.
