BECOME A MENTOR
We need your special skills and perspective to show a young person what opportunities they have and give them the confidence to work towards big goals.
The COVID-19 Pandemic has exacerbated many of the issues that youth were facing before the pandemic.
Now youth are dealing with:
- Falling behind in their studies
- Low self esteem
- Disbelief in a positive future
12% of high school dropouts are unemployed (more than twice the national average).
Academic Mentoring is life changing for youth.
- One-on-one attention
- Study skills
- Academic support
- Goal setting
- Encouragement for success
- Learn resilience
- Gain self-confidence
- Set bigger and bigger goals
- Graduate High School and Complete Post-Secondary Education
- Become successful, contributing, adult citizens
To volunteer to become a mentor, you will need to pass a background check, provide proof of identity, attend an online training, and fill out a profile of your skills and experience. Parents of mentees will choose mentors that match their child’s needs based on time availability, skills, and more.
Because Academic Mentoring is entirely online you can do it from anywhere that you have an internet connection.
You only need one-hour a week to make a difference in the life of a young person.
