Vision, Mission, and History

Our Vision

Every Child in Lanark County Who Needs a Mentor, Has a Mentor.

Our Mission

"Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lanark County is a not for profit volunteer organization which helps children reach their full potential through consistent, dependable and non-conditional adult friendship."

Our History in Lanark County

The first meeting to launch the local Big Brothers Association was held in Carleton Place on May 16, 1973 resulting in a consent of corporation from Big Brothers of Canada in October 1973. As the agency grew the decision was made to include girls needing our special service, and in December 1982 the first Big Sister met her Little Sister.

Since 1974 hundreds of men and women have offered friendship to local children. These volunteers are screened and receive on-going support and guidance from agency professional staff.
