Why Your Help is Needed All children deserve to fulfill their potential. Unfortunately, many don’t have the support and encouragement to get there. Enter Big Brothers Big Sisters! They connect youth with carefully screened mentors and support that result in friendships to ensure optimum outcomes like resilience, improved school achievement, confidence and the strength to make positive life choices. Many of the youth in the programs are marginalized and live in circumstance (such as financial insecurity, violence in their homes or neighbourhoods, absent parent(s) or family illness) leaving them at risk for toxic stress. This has an adverse effect on the developing brain, emotional regulation, and day-to-day things like school behaviour, peer relationships and overall mental health. But here’s the AMAZING thing! Mentoring is an intervention and strategy to help kids succeed! Something as simple as a consistent, positive relationship with someone who believes in you, promotes healthy development, creating a foundation for school achievement, economic productivity, and responsible citizenship. Your support of Bowl for Kids Sake is an investment in the mentoring programs which benefits everyone, socially and economically. How You can help DESERVING kids Corporate Events – Thursday, May 2 and Friday, May 3 Enter a team(s).
