Big Bunch Group Program

BigBunch     Group based recreational program

  

Big Bunch provides children and youth with mentoring support through group-based recreational programming. By participating in recreational activities children and youth develop self-esteem and social skills.

Each group of 4 to 8 children has a minimum of two mentors. Bi-weekly sessions include activities that are chosen to promote relationships between mentees and mentors, and between mentees themselves. They vary from activities in a gym (sports/games/crafts) to attending special events.  Big Bunch groups are organized on an as needed basis.

The program strives to do the following:

  • to encourage youth to develop positive relationships with caring adults and peers
  • develop and build self-esteem and self-confidence
  • increase youth participation in recreational programming
  • encourage youth to improve their mental and physical health
  • support the development of leadership and life skills
  • support the development of social skills

Volunteer commitment: 1 to 2 hours/week for 6 weeks.
