Foroige Big Brother Big Sister Programme

Who We Are

We are an internationally renowned youth mentoring programme that forms friendships between an adult volunteer and a young person who will benefit from extra support.

What We Do

The way it works; A staff member works closely with a young person and their parent/guardian to match them to a big brother/sister based on similar interests, hobbies and complimentary personality traits. The staff member will also match the identified needs of the young person to the specific strengths and abilities of the volunteer.

Once matched to a volunteer the young person meets them weekly for a minimum of a year.

How We Do It

We provide young people aged 10 -18 with a positive role model/mentor and most of all friend through a professionally supported weekly meeting with a caring older adult volunteer.
Matches do a range of activities from going for coffee to playing sport, baking, arts and crafts, cinema and much more, it all depends on the interests of the young person and volunteer.
The volunteer and young person/parent arrange meeting times and days between them.

Who We Serve

Young people aged between 10 and 18 years of age.
