Title of Volunteer Position:
Mentor

Frequency of Position:
Once a week for an hour (typically during the school year)

Description of Position:
A volunteer will mentor a child that is matched to you by a Mentoring Coordinator. The volunteer will visit the child at their school for forty-five minutes to an hour each week in the school the child currently attends. During the mentoring times you stay on school grounds. We typically like someone to honour the commitment for a year but hopefully longer! You can really change a child’s life and help by building the confidence to achieve more.
