Proudly supporting local charities
Every year, a portion of proceeds from OnPoint Community Credit Union Oregon WinterFest is donated to a local nonprofit. In 2019, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Oregon returns as this year’s beneficiary!
Providing one-to-one mentoring for kids in need of supportive role models
Mission Statement: To provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
Big Brothers Big Sisters offers effective mentoring programs that improve the lives of our community’s youth. These programs deeply engage communities through collaboration with families, mentors, community funders, schools and other partners.
Our mentors help foster:
Higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships
Avoidance of risky behaviors
Offering a variety of programs to meet community and youth needs
Community-Based Mentoring: Adults and children are paired in one-to-one mentoring relationships and participate in a variety of activities out in the community. As a traditional Big Brother or Big Sister, you will meet with your Little Brother or Sister for 6-12 hours a month in the community.
School-Based Mentoring: Children are matched with adults or high school students who meet with them at a set time every week in their school, work on homework, visit the library, play outside — or enjoy lunch together!
