Success Stories

 “My sons’ big brothers have been a real blessing to my boys and our family. I believe the experience that they have with their Big Brothers will remain with them for the rest of their lives.

Both Big Brothers had a soft spot in their hearts for boys that didn’t have a dad at home because they experienced that themselves in their own childhood.

It’s my prayer as a single mother, that my boys continue to carry that soft spot in their hearts for boys that don’t have a dad at home, just like their Big Brothers did for them.”

“Words alone cannot express the gratitude I feel for Big Brothers & Big Sisters of Williams Lake. They have assisted my family and I in so many ways.

Because of the special bond my children have developed with their ‘Bigs,’ they have bloomed into happy, confident young adults. It’s been such a privilege to have these wonderful, caring people involved in their lives.

A special thank-you to you, the citizens and merchants of Williams Lake for your support of a program that has been integral in the well-being of our family.”

-Yours truly, A grateful Parent



“I believe this is one of the best community based programs available for kids in Williams Lake; ‘hard to believe it is free. The mentors provide a special hour that my kids look forward to all week. This is a bright spot amongst many frustrations during the week.”

-Mike Franklin - Elementary School Principal



“I am particularly gratified by this meaningful intervention at my inner-city school. High absenteeism is a regular occurrence; regardless of home difficulties, these students are at school on the day their mentor is scheduled.”

-Judy Davis - Elementary School Counsellor
