Bigs On Campus

Bigs On Campus - A Western University Group

Deciding what to do after high school can be overwhelming. Bigs on Campus is here to help make the journey less intimidating and more fun!

Bigs on Campus is a Western University group run by Western students in collaboration with Big Brothers Big Sisters of London & Area that provides programming to our mentees (ages 13 and up), both in one to one matches and awaiting a match.

These Western University students are a group of fun and positive role models that believe access to education is important for all young people. Bigs on Campus hosts events on campus throughout the school year for mentees ages 13 and up.

Past events have included campus tours and resume writing workshops, and upcoming events include sporting events and music workshops. Matches with mentees are encouraged to attend together, to have fun on campus, as well as learn about post-secondary education and how to apply to university and college.

Unmatched mentees ages 13 and up are also encouraged to join and attend events. Unmatched teen mentees will be matched at Bigs on Campus events with a screened and trained university student who will be their mentor for the day.

Other information:

- Bigs on Campus mentors need to sign up to become a mentor on the BBBSOL website, as well as complete a criminal record check before attending our events

- Western University students can apply to become part of the executive planning team. Applications typically go out late August until mid-September and will be posted on the Facebook page
