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.

Social Innovators Take The Lead.

Monday April 15th, 2013 - Rise and shine! It was an early start for the 100 youth at the Big Brothers Big Sisters Social Innovators Youth Summit 2013 but with bright smiles and incredible energy, they were ready and eager to get started.

Today, leadership was the key focus with detailed workshops on leadership styles, public speaking and an inspiring message from our key note speaker, Olympic Team Trialist (Sprinter) and 2013 Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Award Recipient, Tania Archer. With her down to earth charm and charismatic personality, Tania motivated the youth to reach their true potential not only as leaders but also as champions in their own communities. 

Tomorrow we head to Parliament Hill where the 100 youth will be meeting with MP’s from across the country.

Stay tuned for all the updates from the hill!
