One to One Mentoring Programs

Youth referred to One to One Mentoring programs represent a broad section of the community. They may be wealthy or lower income, from large or small families, minorities or majorities. Some enjoy trying new things and meeting people while others come from a life of conflict and significant challenges. They all benefit from a little guidance, encouragement and companionship.

 

Core Mentoring is the heart of the organization. The goals of the program are to empower youth to achieve their social, emotional, and academic potential. Mentors spend 2-6 hours per week with a Mentee (age 5-17) for one year or more. The match spends time involved in enriching activities in the community, spending one-on-one time together as well as joining in on One to One Mentoring's group outings. The match may also focus on homework if there is an academic need.

 

The Study Buddy Program was created to support students with academic needs but has morphed to include a wide variey of needs - social, emotional and academic.The Mentor and Mentee meet two hours per week for at least a year to work on whatever best suits the youth - life skills, companionship, homework support or other activities.  Matches often participate in One to One Mentoring's monthly group activities.

 

Art Apprenticeship Program An Art Mentor or tradesperson and the Mentee spend 1-3 hours per week to explore a specific art form or skill. Commitments may be for six months or a year and may include a wide variety of artistic expression, from classical skills to welding. 

 

Group Mentoring (Girls Group & Boys Group) targets older youth in Middle and High School who may have outgrown their mentoring relationship but who still benefit from extra support and guidance.  Group focus may include post-secondary academic and career exploration, sports/team building, body awareness, communication skills or study skills. Groups are created based on a specific need.
