In School Mentoring
Our In-School Mentoring Program provides children with a role model and friend to talk to all from the familiar space of their own school. Children and youth ages 6-18 are provided with a mentor who will meet with them for an hour every week. Each meeting follows the “20-20-20 model,” which involves 20 minutes of getting to know each other, 20 minutes of school work support, and 20 minutes of your children or youth’s choice in activities. All mentors are fully screened and trained by our agency and contact with mentors is limited to the school setting only.
Mentees: Kids between 6 and 18 who need extra support with their schoolwork.
Mentor: Anyone over 18 who would like to help a child do better in school
Minimum Commitment: 1 hour per week throughout the school year
Availability: We run in-school mentoring programs at schools in Edmonton, Sherwood Park, St. Albert and Parkland.
When & Where: At the same time each week during the school day at school
