Program Overview

The In-School mentoring program runs from October to May, and provides youth with a role model and a friend to talk to and share the experiences of growing up within school grounds. For one hour a week, mentors meet with their mentee and engage in activities such as board games, crafts or just hang out on school grounds.

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.

Youth are enrolled through a referral from school staff.

There is also a group version of the In-School Mentoring program operating in Winnipeg between select High Schools and Elementary Schools.
