About Us

Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Annapolis Valley is an autonomous member of a Federation comprised of 100 member agencies servicing more than 1,100 communities across the country.   The local agency is governed by a local board of directors and all funds raised are used to deliver programs in the Annapolis Valley.

Many children and youth in Canada struggle with societal barriers and face adversities in their lives like detrimental living conditions, family violence, risk factors for mental health, school issues and identity challenges.

These circumstances have nothing to do with the value of who they are or who they can become, but because of these situations, children and youth risk not having the opportunity to live up to their full potential.

Even worse is the possibility of continuing cycles of poverty and crime or developing mental health issues.  This comes at a cost to the young person, and to society.  With the guidance and support of a mentor, these risks can be reduced or even avoided, and youth are reminded they can be anything they dream of being.
