Each time a child is paired with a mentor or we introduce a group of students to an in-school program, something incredible is started: a life-changing relationship built on friendship, trust and empowerment.
Research has demonstrated that mentoring programs have dramatic, measurable impact on the lives of young people, including decreases in risky behavior and violence, and increases in positive civic engagement.
Thanks to AGLC, Big Brothers Big Sisters Medicine Hat & District successfully continue to play a vital role in our community and create a ripple effect. By transforming the lives of our youth, by brightening their days and broadening their sense of the world, we are opening their minds to new perspectives and to everything that is possible when we all do our part.
