Foróige’s youth mentoring programme is the subject of a new RTÉ Radio One documentary made by Della Kilroy, a journalist who herself is a Big Sister volunteer! Hear from Melissa & Claire (12), Ronan & Isaac (15) - two Big Brother Big Sister matches brought about by Foróige. There’s bowling, hanging out, shopping...just like any great friendship!

The UNESCO Child and Family Research Centre, National University of Ireland, Galway have carried out research on the Big Brothers Big Sisters programme on behalf of Foróige. The results are in!

BBBS is Ireland’s leading youth mentoring programme that matches a volunteer to a young person who would benefit from extra support. Last year our Foróige supported programme enabled 3,153 young people in our community and school programmes across 11 counties, and we hope to build on this in 2013.
