Big Brothers Big Sisters of Saint John is excited to host the first annual Inspire Awards! This inaugural event is taking place on Wednesday, November 1st at the Delta Saint John and will bring together stakeholders from business, non-profit and government sectors to celebrate and recognize the importance of mentoring in our community.

Mentoring has a significant impact on the lives of others, not only for youth, but for the community as a whole. As leaders in mentoring we are excited to recognize selected recipients at the Inspire Awards highlighting the achievements of individuals in seven categories:
• Inspire Youth (15-24 years of age)
• Inspire Imagination
• Inspire Public Service
• Inspire Civic Spirit
• Inspire Learning
• Inspire Leadership
• Inspire Community Spirit

The Inspire Awards will serve as a platform to celebrate mentoring in our community while at the same time raise funds to support mentoring programs for children and youth. Big Brothers Big Sisters serves more than 400 children in the region every year with about 200 volunteers. It makes a difference in the community by providing children in need with one-to-one mentoring services that are proven to help kids stay in school, avoid risky behavior such as bullying, and grow up to be more civic-minded adults.
