Big Brothers Big Sisters mission is: to make a positive difference in the lives of tamariki through strong and enduring, professionally supported, mentoring relationships.
We match young people between the age of 6 and 11 years of age and there is certain criteria that needs to be met, to make a successful match.

We are always in need of volunteers!
Mentoring relationships are most effective when they last a long time and when frequent contact is made. To be a mentor you need to:
• volunteer 1 – 2 hours per week
• commit to the mentoring for 12 months
• be reliable and consistent
• be willing to be supervised
• for community based and school based programmes the volunteer must be over 18
