BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS OF GUELPH
Potential lives within every young person, yet hundreds of thousands of Canadian children and youth are still in urgent need of someone who will stand in their corner and ignite their potential.
That’s why Big Brothers Big Sisters – a 106-year-old organization – is being reinvented and reintroduced to the world with a new look, alongside modern, exciting and impactful language. The new brand is a call to action for Canadians to be a part of something bigger, a movement to prove how critical relationships are to our success, mental health and wellbeing.
The logo’s three lines showcase the three players who help a young person forge a new path forward: the family, the charity, and the volunteer mentor (the “Big”). The new look and brand reflect months of research and consultation with over 3,500 volunteer mentors, young people (“Littles”), parents and guardians, mentoring leaders, and members of the general public from coast to coast.
“We are so excited to share our new brand with the community in Guelph. It truly reflects our commitment to being a progressive and youth-centric mentoring organization,” said Michael Treadgold, Executive Director at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Guelph. “Our modernization is meant to engage a new wave of supporters and give them an opportunity to make a true difference in this world, to change two lives: their own and the life of a young person.”
The new mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters is to enable life-changing mentoring relationships to ignite the power and potential of young people. The call to action is for more people, more volunteers, and more community partners to join the mentoring movement and create that spark. Widespread support from the community is needed to professionally support mentor- mentee matches across the country.
A new brand launch video shines a light on the power and potential of youth: http://bigbrothersbigsisters.ca/biggertogether. The organization is spreading this message far and wide, encouraging Canadians to step up and join the mentoring movement. We are bigger together.
