Big Brother Big Sister

Foróige’s Big Brother Big Sister Programme Partners with Toyota Ireland to Promote Youth Mentorship

Alan August 31, 2022

Foróige has launched a new campaign with Toyota Ireland to promote our highly commended Big Brother Big Sister mentorship programme.

As part of the world’s largest youth mentoring programme, Big Brother Big Sister aims to provide friendship, support and guidance from a caring adult volunteer that will aid young people in making positive decisions and guiding them on their journeys into adulthood. Toyota’s support will encourage participation of headquarters, dealership staff members and people across Ireland to buddy up with a young person (aged 10 – 18) in their local community.

Renowned Munster Rugby player Robin Copeland signed up to the Foróige Big Brother Big Sister Programme earlier this year and is calling for others to follow in his footsteps and support a young person in need.
Earlier this year, Foróige launched the #BigBrotherBigSister campaign in a bid to encourage more volunteers to become “big brothers” or “big sisters” and spend some quality time with a young person who would benefit from having a mentor in their lives.
