Mentoring Makes A 'BIG' Difference!

Children with mentors are more likely to do well in school, go on to successful careers, live happy, healthy lives, and give back to their communities. In fact, every $1 invested in mentoring by BBBS returns $18 to society.

There are thousands of children and youth in and around Calgary who have been impacted by mentoring - read some of their stories.
