Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lanark County is a not for profit volunteer organization which helps children develop to their unique potential through consistent, dependable and non-conditional adult friendship.
We believe all children should be given the opportunity to reach their full potential. In providing these opportunities, the children will enhance their personal development as well as become engaged citizens in their community.
We believe that by changing the course of young lives we can in turn be changing the course of our community’s future. That it could lead to a reduction in poverty and unemployment; to safer schools and neighbourhoods; to a renewed optimism for growth. We believe that it has the potential to lead to change on a broader, more far-reaching scale.
We believe that opening a child’s eyes to “what is” opens his/her mind to “what could be.”
We are Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lanark County, and we believe in the value of mentoring.
