They provide opportunities for youth to build relationships with caring, carefully screened adult mentors. We
also provide youth with leadership opportunities by volunteering as a teen mentor to a younger child. We offer
both community and school-based programming.
Volunteers make a tremendous difference all over the world. They are people who are willing to give off their time and talents to make things better for someone else or to help an organization to achieve its goals. It is an extremely generous thing to do.

In-School Mentorship program will help our learners build positive relationships with an adult in our community, experience more success in academics and develop social/leadership skills. In-School Mentorship will further the links between our students, our school and our community by engaging our volunteers to mentor our students through a variety of interactions. We will continue to work within the 20-20-20 model. 20 minutes of reading, 20 minutes of activity and 20 minutes of free time. We believe that these positive relationships and interactions will contribute to the strength and resiliency of our students and our community. Please contact Jenn Goulden 780-963-7366 for additional information.
The In School Mentoring program provides girls and boys with a role model and a friend to talk to and share the experiences of growing up with, within school grounds. For one hour a week, mentors meet with their mentee and engage in activities such as board games, crafts or just hang out in the playground.
The In School Mentoring program requires a weekly visit of 1 hour for the duration of the school year. Matches do not meet over the summer break or during other school holidays.
The program strives to do the following:
provide a role model and a friend for girls and boys.
promote the importance of staying in school and healthy relationships with family and peers.
instill trust and self-confidence in order to make healthy decisions.
encourage leadership skills and independent thinking.
and above all, make a difference while having fun.
