BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS SHERWOOD PARK is running a school based mentoring program at Brentwood Elementary School

Volunteers interested in participating in this program apply to the agency, and work with Enrolment staff to go through all the required paperwork and training pieces in order to be matched to a child within designated schools.  Support is provided to all volunteers during their match/school year by a Program Facilitator from Big Brothers Big Sisters.

We look for a minimum one year commitment from our volunteers in this program.

If you are interested in learning more, please do not hesitate to contact Tracy Lockhart (780-420-6352) or Alexandra Jansen (780-566-2982).  We will be happy to connect with you and provide any additional information you might be looking for – or help you through the application process to become more involved as a volunteer or advocate for the program!
