Right now, our young people are facing even more adversities in their lives during this pandemic – stress and social isolation. Loneliness and social isolation can be difficult for all of us, but vulnerable families and children will suffer the most.

Good News! Relationship building is still happening. Our volunteer mentors are reaching out and connecting virtually with their Little Brothers and Sisters  – maintaining positive relationships during these challenging times. With your support, life-changing mentoring relationships are one of the few essential services we can continue to provide to youth through this pandemic.

Taking on a personal challenge, or getting together online with friends, family and neighbours can also be a great way to support youth. Whether it’s challenging your friends via social media, or holding a video streaming marathon with your followers to gather pledges, your fundraising efforts will help us connect even more young people with mentors.
