We are the amalgamation of two internationally recognized child serving organizations; Boys & Girls Clubs and Big Brothers Big Sisters. By combining the concepts of both, BGCBigs delivers programs that address the physical, emotional, academic and overall wellness of children and youth.
In 2012/13, nearly 5,000 kids and their families participated in our programs, with the support of over 3,200 volunteers.
BGCBigs provides safe places for kids to be after school and during school holidays through our 9 neighbourhood clubs and more than 20 additional group programs. With school and community partnerships, our goals is to ensure kids have access to supportive programming, meal provision and adult mentoring where they live and learn.
We also offer volunteer driven mentoring programs in a variety of ways. Caring adults share their time with a child or group of children in more than 60 Edmonton and area schools and in the community.
