About Us

As Canada’s leading child and youth mentoring charity, Big Brothers Big Sisters facilitates life-changing relationships that inspire and empower children and youth to reach their potential, both as individuals and citizens.


Our History in Wood Buffalo, Alberta
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Wood Buffalo has been creating friendships since 1979. Our accreditation came in 1980. We started out matching Big Brothers with Little Brothers and have grown to include a variety of different programs that serve both boys and girls. We are proud of our achievements and continue to strive to be on the leading edge of the Big Brothers Big Sisters movement in Canada.

For thirty years we have been serving the youth of this area by providing them with the highest quality, volunteer mentoring programs. In 2002 we began matching girls with mentors and in October of 2003 we changed our name in order to be identified as a non gender specific association within the area known as Wood Buffalo. Big Brothers Big Sisters is a non profit charity and is a member in good standing of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada and Big Brothers Big Sisters International.
