There is no more important investment we can make than in helping our children realize and share their full potential
Meet the Miller Family
The Millers* family (*they are too modest to share their real name) have lived in Oakville for many years and wanted to give back to the community. They developed our new Matching Challenge and committed to double every dollar raised during the campaign to match a child with a mentor. The Millers who have children of their own understand the need for mentorship and the need to fast track the number of children on our waiting list.
“Being a parent I truly see the struggle young children face today with technology, bullying and low self-esteem, every child should have someone to look up too or turn to for advice,” said Mrs. Miller. The generosity of the Millers will help Big Brothers Big Sister of Halton reach our goal of connecting 117 children with a positive role model.
Please join the Millers in reaching our goal of $10,000. You can make your donation at - Mentoring Matching Challenge

Brayden and Dixon
Brayden and Dixon were a longstanding In-School Mentoring match that were paired together for 5 years, they have since transitioned to the 1:1 program and Dixon has been Brayden's Big Brother for 10 months. Dixon has been a consistent and strong male role model in Brayden’s life and even though they have known each other for nearly 6 years their match continues to strengthen with each passing week.
The original plan was for Dixon and Brayden to see each other for lunch once a week but Dixon has gone above and beyond these expectations. Since they started their 1:1 match they have not only been doing their weekly lunch outings but they have also been going on additional outings such as going to the C.N.E., attending group recreation events, attending archery classes together and they have even gone to a Toronto Maple Leafs game!! Dixon is someone who Brayden can bounce ideas off of, share experiences with, answer questions and most importantly he is a friend to Brayden. Dixon has been a big part of Brayden’s life and has had a hand in Brayden growing from a boy to the young man he is today and he will continue to be there for Brayden for years to come.
