In-School Mentoring

In-School Mentor:

The In-School Mentoring Program provides supportive one-to-one mentoring relationships to children and youth during their school day.

Mentoring relationships build a connection through play-based activities. Each session is child-led, based on the mentee’s interests, and may include exploring the playground, cooking in the school kitchen, or checking out arts & crafts and board games in our very own ‘Big & Little Activity Supply Bins. In this program, matches are only in contact during the designated one hour/week of program time.
