Big Brothers Big Sisters of West Island is a non-profit organization servicing West Island families since 1975 (45 years). The recent events with the COVID pandemic and surrounding back-to-school uncertainties, along with the growing demand of youth on our waiting list within our community, is of growing concern and needs to be addressed. As a result, a 4-week Recruitment Campaign was officially launched yesterday for Big Brothers and Big Sisters, as needs are reaching unprecedented levels.
We currently have over 50 boys on our waitlist, and over 20 girls, which is why the need for volunteers is so pressing. We began the campaign by sending out a press release and posted a launch video featuring various Big Brothers and Big Sisters speaking about the agency. In addition, there are several images being posted over the next four weeks, as well as several video capsules.
