At Big Brothers Big Sisters, we believe every child should have the opportunity to reach his or her full potential – both as individuals and citizens. We believe that by changing the course of young lives we can in turn be changing the course of a community’s future.
Start Talking is a place where we want to raise awareness of key issues that face today’s youth. We will sometimes advocate, sometimes educate, sometimes inform, sometimes ask questions and always invite discussion about the pressing concerns that involve the younger generations of today.

And it Starts!

Today we welcomed 100 youth to our nation’s Capital for the Big Brothers Big Sisters Social Innovators Youth Summit 2013!

We’ve got a busy week ahead of us with key speakers such as Olympic Team Trialist (Sprinter) Tania Archer, Sports Legend Donovan Bailey, Miss America 2012 Laura Kaeppeler and WestJet’s VP of Communications. They will be inspiring and motivating our young leaders to pursue their goals and aspirations.

A key highlight of the week will be a visit to Parliament Hill to meet with MP’s from across the country to discuss the youth’s community project.

As we gathered this evening to officially meet and greet the youth, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada’s President & CEO, Bruce MacDonald, had some insightful words for our Social Innovators of the Youth Summit 2013.
