About Sarnia-Lambton Rebound:

Sarnia-Lambton Rebound is a 3-star charity. It has an average results reporting grade and low funding reserves. The charity has reasonable overhead costs and a Fair demonstrated impact rating.

Founded in 1984, Sarnia-Lambton Rebound (SLR) works with teenagers and families in Sarnia, Ontario and the surrounding communities. The charity reports that a teen’s ability to navigate relationship issues with parents, peers, and community members often determines whether the teen will engage in risky behaviour. SLR works to provide an environment where clients feel empowered to face challenges and make decisions that are right for them. Since founding, the charity has worked with more than 40,000 youth through almost 20 different programs and services.  

SLR operates the HUB and r.Lounge spaces for youth to enjoy a hot meal, participate in fun activities with peers, and access support from 35 other community organizations for education, employment, mental health, and addiction. In F2021, the HUB provided services to 38 youth and had 1,054 youth interactions.

SLR also offers in-school suspension and detention services. Students in secondary schools in the St. Clair Catholic District School Board are held in a classroom within the school instead of being sent home. In detention, students complete schoolwork, participate in social skills development, and reflect on how they can make better choices in the future.

SLR provides arts programs such as GPS (Getting Possibilities Started), Act II, Expressive Arts, and Rebound Rocks. Youth produce a local television show, plan community events, produce plays, and perform at concerts.
