What is Brovember?

"Brovember" - commonly associated with the "Movemeber" campaign to promote men's health and wellness each November - is a month-long opportunity to focus on the benefits of mentorship and the need for men to become Big Brothers. The Brovember Campaign is simple: engage with the great men in your life during the month of November and encourage them to become Big Brothers.

 

Why focus on men and boys?

About two-thirds of the children and teens who are waiting for a mentor are boys. They tend to wait longer than girls to be matched with a mentor because there aren't enough men volunteering as Big Brothers. You can help us change this by promoting our mentoring opportunities to the men in your life and stressing the importance of mentorship for boys.
