BBBSSSM is a not for profit organization serving youth in our community and committed to the healthy development of children and youth through valuable mentoring programs vital in fostering their full potential.

As part of her role, Lisa will continue to support the day to day operations of the organization and further our goal that every child that needs a mentor has a mentor. Lisa is an Algoma University graduate and obtained her Not-for-Profit Management designation from St. Clair College in Windsor, ON. She has led other agencies in an Executive Director role and believes in the power of collaborations in creating positive change and growth.

“My time at Big Brother’s in the mid 2000’s provided me with both an extremely rewarding work experience, but also helped to nurture my career as I moved into an Executive Director role at Sault Youth Association. I feel like I have come full-circle and am excited about the opportunity to lead Big Brothers Big Sisters and continue the great work that we do in this city for both our children and youth, and the satisfaction that comes from being a positive Adult mentor, “ said Lisa Vezeau-Allen, Executive Director, BBBSSSM.

Glyn Heatley, BBBSSSM President, states “I would like to take this opportunity to welcome back to the agency, Lisa Vezeau-Allen. Lisa worked in the past with Big Brothers before the amalgamation, and has just been hired by the Board as the new Executive Director. We intend to pull on Lisa’s experience in the Not-for Profit sector, and move forward in a sustainable manner. This will allow us to guarantee our services are continued and expanded upon, to try and meet the needs of children within the community.”

Lisa’s passion, enthusiasm and commitment to youth mentoring programs and her insight into the impact of adult allies, combined with her vast work experience will be a benefit to our community of Bigs and Littles.
