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.

Our BIGGEST Thank You!

April 12-18 marks National Volunteer Week across Canada! We are especially grateful to the thousands of volunteers who generously donate their time to make a BIG difference in the lives of so many Little Brothers and Little Sisters across the country.

To all of our Big Brothers, Big Sisters, In-School Mentors, Go Girls! Mentors, Study Buddies, and Game On Mentors, etc. who wear so many hats through your tireless volunteerism – thank you for recognizing and championing the potential in each and every Little Brother and Sister supported by our programs. Thank you for ensuring that each of these young boys and girls will grow up believing in their self-worth and their abilities; for reinforcing the truth that each child we work with is not defined by the challenges they face in their lives, but the love, caring, and compassion that makes each one of them, them.

Thank you for your dedication, your consistency, and your belief in a world when every child who needs a mentor, has a mentor.

Thank you for your gift of time, for your passion, for your compassion, and your tireless commitment to the empowerment of our nation’s youth.

Your work positively impacts each Little Brother or Sister as well as all of our communities on the whole. You are inspiring the next generation of mentors! Every young person who goes out into the world believing in their own self-worth will in turn teach this to every single person they meet along the way.

This is the power of mentoring.

This is the power you empower as a Big Brothers Big Sisters mentor.

We cannot thank you enough.
