Kind words from Big Brothers of Vancouver

Thank you so very much for all your time and efforts in making this valuable workshop happen. Not only are you sharing your knowledge and expertise for free but you reached out to Beedie Luminaries to do the same. You are all benefiting the youth by providing information they would not normally be able to access, and by reducing barriers for them in attending post-secondary. We greatly appreciate your reaching out to our community and thank you for your contributions towards brighter futures for these youth.
