As an In School Mentor you will build a friendship with a child in a school setting, participating in activities which you both enjoy. You may play games, read, make crafts, talk, play a sport, bake, or play on the computer together. Your friendship will increase a child?s success and school performance by improving their self esteem and confidence. An In School Mentor can be an adult (Big Buddy) or a secondary school student in Grades Ten to Twelve (Teen Mentor). Your time commitment is one hour per week from September through June (the school year). Mentoring Coordinators provide professional screening and support to you, the child and the family.
