“What we typically see is that the young boys in the community who are in need of a mentor tend to wait about twice as long as young girls,” said Michael Treadgold, executive director at BBBSG. “So we are looking to increase our total volunteer organization base by bringing in some new, trained, and trusted adult volunteers to serve as mentors for kids in the community.”

BBBSG and other organizations that rely on volunteers are still facing challenges brought on by the pandemic.“We have 107 young males on our waiting list,” said casework manager Andrea Azevado.Treadgold adds they are trending on the downward end and wants to fill the gaps as quickly as possible. “We’re trying to get creative, look for opportunities to engage in the community, and make sure they are touching various corners of Guelph.”
