Volunteer to Start Something
What if every child finished high school, went to college or university, got a job and gave back to our community? Wouldn't that be something?

A rewarding experience for one of our Littles

Our Caseworker Vanessa and one of our Littles, Karine, travelled to the Dominican Republic the week of November 9th with an organization called 'Live Different' to help build houses for families in impoverished communities. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada organized the trip with the help of Invesco Canada and WestJet. Thank you BBBS of Canada for giving our Littles amazing opportunities to give back!
