This organization's needs

  • The Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring program provides boys, girls and teenagers aged 6 to 15, with a role model to talk to and share the experience of growing up with. Through regular outings, a tight relationship is developed between the mentor and the mentee, which is built on trust and common interests. Throughout the relationship, both mentor and child are supported by experienced caseworkers. The experience allows both mentor and child to experience a relationship that will likely change both their lives. | Place of work: à déterminer Read more...
  • The In-School Mentoring program provides boys and girls with a role model and friend they can talk to and share their experiences of growing up within school grounds. The mentor meets his/her mentee for one hour a week. Together, they engage in activities, such as playing board games, arts, and crafts or just hanging out on school grounds. | Place of work: à l'école Read more...
  • LGBTQ2+ Mentoring - for youth who identifies with the LGBTQ2+ community.

The goal of the program is to offer a mentor who identifies with the LGBTQ2+ community to a young person who is in questioning or identifying with the same community, in order to create a bond of friendship and support them by serving as a positive role model. | Place of work: On location Read more...
