  • Big Brothers Big Sisters of London and Area (BBBSOLA) provides mentoring programs to children and youth between the ages of 7-17. Mentors (Bigs) are screened and trained to provide their mentees (Littles) with support and companionship, while acting as a positive role model. Once a match is made, mentors commit to meeting with their mentee once a week for 3 to 4 hours. Matches can plan activities suitable to their interests, but they also have the option of attending monthly match events facilitated through the agency. These events offer a number of different activities, and provide matches with an opportunity to meet one another and, most importantly, have fun. 


  • Parents or guardians interested in getting their child involved are encouraged to contact Emily, the BBBSOLA Family Enrollment Worker at emily.sereda@bigbrothersbigsisters.ca or 519-438-7065 x6232. BBBSOLA requires an application, as well as an interview in order to enroll a new Little. While it can take up to a year to be matched with a mentor, BBBSOLA provides additional group mentoring programs, for young people ready and waiting to be matched.
