Big Brothers Big Sisters Expanding to Include Teen Moms

March 11, 2019

Both of Niagara's Big Brothers Big Sisters chapters are partnering with Strive Niagara to bring teen moms together with professional mentors.

The program began as a pilot project last year, and is now better equipped to showcase the benefits of mentorship. The BBBS Foundation of Canada did a study that revealed every dollar that is invested in mentorship programs brings an $18 return on investment.

Funded by a grant from an anonymous Niagara foundation, the program will launch later this year, as it is still in infancy stages and is being assessed.
