Nutrien Feeding the Future Through Mentorship with
a Donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Saskatoon & Area
Saskatoon, SK – April 21, 2021
Every year, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Saskatoon (BBBSS) enables life-changing mentoring relationships to ignite the power and potential of over 600 young people in Saskatoon. This year has been exceptionally challenging for the young people and families that we serve. Community partnerships have never been more vital in ensuring the stability of program delivery. Nutrien is a long-time supporter of BBBSS and has committed $20,000 in support of the Circle Project. Targeted at high-risk vulnerable youth, with an added focus to youth who live in care, the Circle Project has successfully established community trust and has adapted mentoring programs to meet the evolving and diverse needs of youth aged 10-18.
“Our work is providing access to mentorship opportunities to youth seeking support, with understanding adult mentors (volunteers) who create positive impact by listening, guiding, and inspiring resiliency. Mentorship has been proven to help break the cycle of poverty, drugs and violence by encouraging healthy lifestyles, furthering education, accelerating engagement into society, and ultimately – providing access and opportunity to youth, ”said Executive Director, Kim Megyesi. “We rely on community partners, like Nutrien, to support our work to empower youth to build up their community and create lasting systemic change through Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, and Canada”.
Additionally, Nutrien is providing Tim Hortons gift cards to our Little Brothers and Little Sisters so they can say ‘Thank You’ with a treat to their mentors during National Volunteer Appreciation Week (April 18-24)
