Many children and youth in Canada struggle with societal barriers and face adversities in their lives. Facing prolonged adversity creates toxic stress in the brain that can negatively impact development. When we provide young people facing adversity with a committed mentor, we are decreasing their risk factors and igniting their potential.
Big Brothers Big Sisters is the leading youth mentoring organization in Canada, enabling life changing mentoring relationships since 1912 through The Power of Three: The Family, the Organization and the Mentor.
Since 2013, the Boston Pizza Foundation Future Prospects has invested over $3 million to help Big Brothers Big Sisters extend and expand mentoring services in new communities. Through the Boston Pizza Foundation Future Prospects, we are working together to ensure vulnerable children and youth have the inspiration, experiences and guidance they need to realize their full potential.
