Go Girls and Game On Student Referral Application
Your school has partnered with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Waterloo Region to participate in our Go Girls! Or Game On! Programs for the 2019/2020 school year!
Go Girls! And Game On! Programs are gendered and focus on providing Grade 7 and 8 students with information and support to make informed choices about healthy, active living.
The students who take part in the group are withdrawn from class to work towards their identified goals with the support of their peers and caring adult mentors for 90 minutes each week over a 7 week period, in the school, during the school day.
All Mentors in the program are screened and trained by Big Brothers Big Sisters staff. Please note that our Mentors are not equipped to deal with students who have high needs or serious behavioural problems.
While the Go Girls! and Game On! programs were developed as gender-specific programs, BBBSWR is an inclusive organization that welcomes all individuals to participate in whichever group they feel most comfortable in. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact school or program staff.
To register a student please complete the form below. To complete the registration please send home the child application package to be completed, singed and returned by the Parent/Guardian.
