Description & Services
Cross Reference In School 1 to 1 Mentoring for children and youth
Description of service(s) Volunteer Mentors are needed to help provide girls and boys with a role model, mentor, and friend to talk to and share the experiences of growing up with, within school grounds.  
For one hour a week, mentors meet with their mentees 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. Studies show that mentoring helps kids stay in school, avoid risky behavior such as bullying, and grow up having more respect for family, peers and community. 
Volunteers of all ages are needed for our 100 child wait list!
Hours 1 hour during the school day, in the child's school (Monday - Friday)
Dates Program is Offered Available during the school year (September - June)
