Mission & Vision

Created in 1984, Sarnia-Lambton Rebound has successfully served over 30,000 young people from across Lambton County in our our first 30 years. Leaders in life skills facilitation, education, and cognitive skill development programs have played an integral role in the development of each of our programs.

Our long history of community support, our continued success in volunteer recruitment and management, and our effective working partnerships with a variety of agencies in our community, have all led to being awarded the prestigious Donner Canadian Foundation Award for Excellence in the Delivery of Social Services for the past 12 consecutive years and more recently the national Peter F. Drucker Award for Excellence in Non-Profit Management.
