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?

Thank you for joining us for our Harvest Stew

On October 22, 2015 over 100 community members came out to the Colborne Legion to taste Northumberland's finest stews - from the traditional to the exotic.  Each stew was served with bread, dessert & coffee!

Together we raised $800 to support United Way Northumberland

Dear BBBSN Volunteers,

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

Thank you for your gift of time, your passion and your compassion and your commitment to empowering our youth. Your work positively impacts each of our Little Brothers and Little Sisters as well as our community as a whole. Every young person who goes out in the world believing in their own self-worth will teach this to every person they meet along the way. This is the power of mentoring. This is the power you empower as a BBBSN volunteer.

We cannot thank you enough.
