Title of Volunteer Position:
Mentor

Frequency of Position:
The In-School Mentoring program requires a weekly visit of one hour for the duration of the school year. Matches do not meet over the summer break or during other school holidays. The Big Sister/Brother program usually requires two regularly scheduled outings a month of several hours each and a minimum of a one year commitment.

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.
