Our History in York Region

Big Brothers of York became incorporated in December 1970 with the mandate of providing boys from absent father homes with friendships by matching them with Big Brothers. 

Today, Big Brothers Big Sisters of York (BBBSY) provides various mentoring programs and free activities to children and youth throughout York Region and Bradford West Gwillimbury. 

These positive mentoring programs help children and youth build the confidence to achieve more, assisting them in reaching their full potential and grow into adults who will contribute positively to society.

Community support and staff-driven fundraising events provide the major portion of the funding that enables BBBSY to advocate on behalf of the children and youth of York Region and Bradford West Gwillimbury.
