Big Brothers Big Sisters of Pictou County is a charitable organization that believes in the value and values of mentoring. We provide a variety of mentoring programs for children and youth between the ages of 6-18 that can be life changing. Big Brothers Big Sisters understand the importance of relationships and mentoring is the centre of our philosophy.

In April 2020 Nova Scotia experienced a tragedy where 22 people were killed in the deadliest shooting in Canadian history. During the time following the tragedy, Nova Scotia pulled together as it does and supported each other through the close relationships that Nova Scotians have, highlighting as much positivity as possible. The hashtag #NSStrong became a representation for the caring people of Nova Scotia. Big Brothers Big Sisters wanted to honor those lost by offering a community bursary in their memory.

DEADLINE – June 17, 2022
