|At Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Huron we enable life-changing mentoring relationships to ignite the power and potential of young people. Our vision is that all young people realize their full potential. We do this by providing a safe forum where children in need can form meaningful, positive relationships with caring adults, in order to foster their personal development.
We strengthen our community through mentoring programs, encouraging individual potential in children and youth. As a member agency of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada (BBBSC), we assist our volunteers in building friendships, which provide guidance and encouragement to the children they support.
