PEER MENTORS HELPING YOUTH

Description

The goal of The Peer Project: Youth mentors help newcomer children transition into Canadian culture. As a mentor, you will offer support and guidance to younger youth in your community. It only takes 3 hours a week– the time it takes to watch a hockey game, go to a movie, or play some video games.

How does it work?

We pair you with a child (aged 6 to 15) based on common interests and where you live. From there, the mentoring begins, with ongoing support from us.
You will share experiences, skills, and hobbies and inspire a younger youth to stay on the right track.
You can volunteer on your schedule (3 hours per week) and close to home.

What’s in it for you?

In a tough job market, being a mentor to an at-risk kid shows community leadership, an attribute that all employers love.
You’ll make a real difference that counts in the life of a child
You get to do fun stuff for FREE, like attending professional sporting events such as Raptors or Jays games; our annual 3 day Summer Camp up North; and other cool field trips such as Canada’s Wonderland or Wild Water Kingdom.
