In 2017, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada launched a National Youth Mentoring Advisory Council to ensure that young people are shaping the future of mentoring in Canada.
These young leaders have firsthand experience as mentees and mentors with Big Brothers Big Sisters. They bring enthusiasm and a fresh perspective to our work and they hope to inspire more of their peers to get involved locally.
Not only can you read about these impressive young people on the Youth Council page, but through their first blog entry below, you can also get to know where they’re from and what they like to do when they’re not at work, school, or at Youth Council meetings.
Thanks for getting to know us better. We hope to represent our diverse voices and experiences from across the country in a series of blog posts and we’re excited to start by sharing a little more about us.
