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?

Our BFKS Kick Off event was a huge success - but you can still come out to bowl. We are booking bowl teams all the way through April! So grab your toques, flannel or anything Canadian eh? This year we're bringing everyone together to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday! Gather your friends, family, and fellow Canucks and join us as we Bowl for Kids Eh? We ask each bowler to strive to raise $50 each/$25 for kids.

Thank you for joining us for our Harvest Stew

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.
