Big Bunch at Ridley College

Big Brothers Big Sisters has longstanding partnership with Ridley College in which once a month during the school year, grade 11 and 12 students from Ridley College engage with children off of the waitlist by playing games, creating craft projects, and other special activities. The purpose of the program is to for the children to create friendships, learn positive social skills, gain confidence, and engage in physical activity. Transportation is arranged for those families who do not have access to it. Events are typically on weekends and are two hours in length.

Big Brothers Big Sisters will continue to engage the children on the waitlist until we can find them the perfect Big Brother or Big Sister. The purpose of the program is for the children to create friendships, learn positive social skills, gain confidence, and engage in physical activity.
