Our History in Kamloops
In 1963 the Big Brothers agency was organized in Kamloops, and in 1969 it was granted a charter and became a chapter of Big Brothers of British Columbia. Then, in 1978, the Kamloops chapter became a society and thus incorporated under the Societies Act. It wasn’t until 1984 that the Big Sisters program was incorporated and we became a joint Big Brothers Big Sisters program. The agency continues to grow, in 1991 we made our first Couples match, in 1995 the In-School Mentoring Program began, in 2003 the Aboriginal Mentoring Component was added, and in 2006 the Big Bunch Program was started.
