Position description: 

(for male-identifying/gender-fluid/non-binary adult volunteers; short-term)

Game On! offers volunteers a short-term opportunity where you’ll join 2-3 other adult volunteers once a week for 7-8 weeks to mentor a group of (usually 8-12) boys about communication skills and healthy living (specifically physical and emotional health). Sessions are offered on a quarterly basis, allowing you to volunteer up to 4 times a year.

Through traditional, and non-traditional physical activities, along with healthy eating information, participants are engaged in life skills, communication and emotional health discussions, designed to engage participants in the pursuit of life-long healthy lifestyles. Sessions are structured around four themes:
• Physical activity
• Healthy eating
• Self-esteem
• Communication skills

Check out our Facebook and Instagram pages (@BigBrothersYVR) where we cite the experience of our volunteers.

Our volunteers tell us that Game On! is a great way to get a taste for what volunteering with Big Brothers is like. Often, after completing the 7-8 week opportunity, our volunteers show interest in our other, longer-term mentoring programs.

Qualifications: 

No special skills or previous experience necessary but must be caring and dependable. Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older. A training session is provided at the Big Brothers' Vancouver office and is flexible.
