In March 2020 the BHive, presented by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Centre Wellington opens.

The BHive is a safe space for youth that will offer programs and services that will build their social emotional competence, mental health and wellbeing, and educational engagement and employment readiness.

After several losses to suicide in our community the Fall of 2017, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Centre Wellington knew we had serve better. With the support of a Youth Action Committee to inform and guide our direction, the generosity and commitment of many community partners, and years of hard work and planning the time has finally come to open our doors!.

When we open our doors we will welcome youth into a safe space called the BHive with programs and services that have had the direction and input from youth. Our Youth Action Committee has regularly been engaged to ensure that each element of the space: from the name to the types of programs and services, to the look and feel within the space itself, reflects the information we gathered from youth.  This approach has been an integral part of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Centre Wellington’s approach to serving better because “The BHive  . . . by youth for youth.”
