Children and youth in Toronto need consistent caring adults now more than ever

The Big Pen Pal

This program concluded in August of 2020 and is no longer running. The Big Pen Pal is a new and innovative intergenerational project that connects Big/Little mentors and matches with socially isolated seniors. This project is delivered in partnership with Sinai Health’s Circle of Care and targets isolated seniors waitlisted for their Friendly Visiting Program. The Big Pen Pal project provides countless benefits to all three parties involved – the Little, the Big and the senior. Like all BBBST programs, participants are exposed to the Search Institute’s® 40 Developmental Assets, enabling them to build developmental relationships and thrive!
