The agency will be working on a referral base with the CIUSSS de L’Ouest de L’Ile de Montreal.

Nancy Audet, an author and journalist, joined Big Brothers Big Sisters of Quebec as an ambassador for the Mentoring 16-21 program. Having been through it herself as a minor, she knows the challenges that these young people will have to overcome. “I know I wouldn’t be where I am today if adults hadn’t reached out to me. Sometimes we underestimate the importance of a word, a counselor and a caring eye for a young person who is experiencing loneliness,” she stated.
