The British Columbia Real Estate Association (BCREA) has partnered with the Big Sisters of the Lower Mainland on a pilot basis to help connect young girls aged seven to 17 with female mentors in the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board (FVREB) area.

About Big Sisters of the Lower Mainland

Right now, Big Sisters of the Lower Mainland have a waiting list of over 150 vulnerable youth waiting for a caring female mentor. Surrey is one area of greatest need. The languages spoken by the young women include Punjabi, Hindu, Farsi, Spanish, Vietnamese and Arabic. These young women are looking for mentors and role models from their own communities.

Big Sisters believe that every person has limitless potential and individual strengths. They seek to maximize these traits in each person who is a part of Big Sisters: Little Sisters who haven’t yet seen what they are capable of; the mentors who are realizing their capability as role models.

Become a Big Sister

BCREA and FVREB invite adult female Realtors, their female colleagues and families to consider becoming Big Sisters. This would involve a commitment of 2-4 hours per week, for a minimum of one year. The rewards of mentoring are immense both for the youth, the Big Sister and for society at large. If you are interested, contact Big Sisters at [email protected] by November 13 to register for an information session (see graphic below).
