MENTORING

Free monthly activities for Grades 5-6 mentees and high school mentors throughout the school year.

Details

The Mentoring Program pairs elementary school students with high school students from both school boards to take part in fun activities held in the community. Mentees from grades 5 and 6 benefit from having the opportunity to voice their worries about the challenges of entering high school while mentors are encouraged to share their experiences and offer advice to mentees for their transitions. Mentors have the opportunity to develop leadership skills in training with our Compass coordinator and are also introduced to the communal benefit of volunteerism.

The program’s goal is for equal English and French participation, bridging any gap between local youth with regard to language. We seek to improve attitudes towards bilingualism and encourage second language conversation in an accepting and enjoyable environment.

All activities, including transportation, are offered free of charge. Previous activities have included: hiking, canned food drives, bowling and university campus tours.
