‘Explorations’ After-School Group Program Volunteering Opportunity:


Explorations is a free after-school program being offered by Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Fraser Valley for youth in grades 4 to 7.

The main goal of the Explorations Program is to provide a fun, safe place for young people to gather, and to learn about themselves and others. In addition, the program strives to achieve the following key objectives:

  • Provide youth with the skills and support they need to cultivate personal wellness and growth  
  • Create a positive environment for youth to develop new friendships
  • Promote healthy decision-making skills
  • Guide youth in learning to strengthen self-esteem and self-awareness 

Each session is structured around short discussion pieces that supplement the key learning objectives which are primarily accomplished through fun, interactive games, activities, and creative crafts. In addition, a healthy snack will be provided each session!



Group Leaders (volunteer mentos) co-lead an after-school group at a local elementary school for youth in grades 4 to 7.


Once a week for 2 hours for 8 consecutive weeks (2-5pm window depending on the school).


Local elementary school. Volunteers are needed for Abbotsford and Chilliwack.

Why Get Involved?

Being a group leader will better prepare you to practice numerous transferable skills in a variety of real-world contexts such as hospitals, schools, and community centers. Help make a difference in a youth’s life today!
