Network Parent/Guardian Reference

Boys and Girls Club Big Brothers Big Sisters of Edmonton is an organization that enrolls volunteer mentors to provide a healthy role model to children and youth in our community. Youth in this program are matched to Volunteer mentors with the goal of providing a positive influence and job readiness support over the period of their commitment. Help us Start Something for our community’s youth by providing a reference that, to the best of your knowledge, is an honest reflection of the youth and their ability to take part in this program.

Your responses will remain confidential.
