Introducing BBBSO’s Building Futures Campaign

As a leading organization dedicated to fostering positive change and empowering the young people in our community, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ottawa (BBBSO) is thrilled to introduce our new campaign, “BUILDING FUTURES.” Building Futures is not just any campaign; it’s a powerhouse of positive impact.

We are embarking on a mission to raise over $100,000, and with the support of the community, we aim to provide a diverse range of mentorship programs to those who are eagerly waiting for their mentor. These programs are more than just mentorship; they are about igniting potential, shaping lives, providing guidance, building confidence, and ultimately, making the dreams of a young person’s future a reality.

At BBBSO, we believe in the incredible potential of every young person in our community. By joining our Building Futures campaign, our supporters become a catalysts for change and a builders of brighter tomorrows.  Building Futures is not merely a fundraising effort; it’s a movement of compassion, support, and hope. Together, we can provide the mentorship and guidance that young people deserve, enabling them to unlock their full potential and become leaders in their own right.

How will the funds from the Building Futures Campaign provide impact?

Empowering Mentorship: Funds raised will directly provide young people with the guidance and mentorship they need to navigate life’s challenges, set goals, and achieve their dreams. By supporting BBBSO and the Building Futures campaign, supporters are investing in the present and building a brighter future for young people in our community.

Alleviating Match Waitlist: Our Mentorship Programs have been incredibly successful, resulting in a growing demand for our unique services. Your generous financial commitment will help us reduce the match waitlist, ensuring more children are paired with mentors who can inspire, guide, and empower them to succeed.

Join us on this incredible journey to Building Futures, and let’s make a lasting, positive impact on the lives of the youth in our community. Your support is the cornerstone upon which their dreams and futures will be built. Together, we can create a brighter tomorrow for the young minds of Ottawa.
