Why Give? Your Dollars at work.

 Why Give

BBBSHPEC's service delivery staff are professional caseworkers with formal training in social work.  Our caseworkers are responsible for screening, training, matching, and supervising volunteers.  A tremendous amount of care is taken to ensure that our matches last for as long as possible.

Unlocking a child's true potential creates a future where anything is possible.  Studies show that children who have the support of a mentor have more confidence, are more likely to develop positive relationships, do well at school, and end up giving back to their community.  Preliminary results from a 2012 study conducted by Centre for Addiction and Mental Health shows mentored youth are:

  • 48% less likely to have behaviour problems at school
  • 34% less likely to allow themselves to be bullied or victimized by peers
  • 2 times more likely to achieve academic success
  • 2.5 times as likely to participate in extra-curricular activities

Mentoring changes the course of young lives.  We believe every child should be given the opportunity to reach his or her full potential.  Many of the youth that our agency serves have experienced hardship.  Our role in the community is to create mentoring relationships that support and guide youth towards new opportunities and a positive future they may not otherwise have.

Your investment helps BBBSHPEC facilitate life-changing relationships which help a child flourish into a confident and productive young adult.  An investment in mentoring is an investment in our community.

Give today and help a child reach their full potential - start something.
