About Us

Our History in Kamloops

Big Brothers was organized in Kamloops in 1963, and in 1969, it was granted a charter and became a chapter of Big Brothers of BC.  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 Big Brothers Big Sisters.  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; in 2012, we launched the Sports Mentorship Program.
