WHO CAN BE A MENTOR?

You can! Being a Mentor is about being a friend and someone to look up to. It’s about hanging out, talking and sharing, with many smiles along the way. It’s about making one child feel very special. And you’ll feel pretty great too. After the enrollment process, we’ll provide training and match you with a mentee, who shares your interests. As a Mentor, you get to build model airplanes, toss around the football, play computer games, bake some cookies, hang out… whatever! It’s about sharing a little time together – a few hours a week or every couple of weeks will make a BIG difference.

Traditional Match

For a small commitment of only 2-4 hours a week, you can hang out with a child that needs a mentor. There are always children in Regina waiting for a mentor, so we encourage you to apply today. After the enrollment process, we’ll provide training and match you with a child, who shares your interests. It’s up to you and your mentee to decide when to get together, and what you do! You could go hiking, biking, play video games, watch a movie, listen to music, or cook! Children are always willing to try new activities and learn new skills. Come up with a list, and try new things together! Click here for more info!

Game On

In this program, we use a mentor approach to provide the boys with information and support to make informed choices about healthy lifestyle practices. Through non-traditional physical activities, complemented with healthy eating information, participants are engaged in life skills, communication and emotional health discussions designed to engage participants in the pursuit of life-long healthy lifestyles. Sessions are loosely structured around four themes: physical activity, healthy eating, self-esteem, and communication skills. Click here for more info!
