All That Kids Can Be

Due to circumstances beyond their control, many kids need help to develop the skills to succeed in school and life. We support programs that ensure children are ready to learn. We invest in programs and initiatives like homework clubs, summer camps, and after-school programs that allow at-risk kids to grow and succeed.

Our Goal: Every child who needs a mentor has a mentor. BBBSGP is a non profit organization serving Grande Prairie and Area for over 15 years.

We believe every child should have the opportunity to reach his or her full potential both as individuals and citizens – that by doing so they will not only do well they will also do good. Serving as role models our mentors teach by example the importance of giving and giving back of staying in school and of having respect for family peers and community. Each time we pair a child with a mentor or introduce a group of students to an in-school program we start something incredible – a life-changing relationship built on friendship trust and empowerment.
