Big Buddy

Big Buddy is all about encouraging confidence and resilience, in the lives of boys without a father around. To achieve this, we recruit good guys from the community to spend time with boys aged between 7 and 14 years old. Everything we do is designed to better the lives of boys whose dads are absent, by giving them a trusted Big Buddy to spend time with and look up to.

The safety and happiness of boys is paramount. The Big Buddy screening program is known to be the most discerning of any agency or club in New Zealand. Our team covers the greater Auckland region, Hamilton, Tauranga and Wellington region, with future plans to reach all the boys around New Zealand. We are currently looking for more Big Buddies in all areas we operate. To sign up or find out more 

We recently reached the amazing milestone of 1000 Little Buddies matched with Big Buddies but still have a long waiting list.
