Teen Mentoring is one of our core mentoring programs offered in collaboration with Peel District School Board and the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board. 

This supervised program matches elementary students to local secondary school mentors in grades 10 - 12.

How it works:

The mentors meet the students at their elementary schools in a group setting for 1 hour each week during school hours throughout the school year. The mentoring relationships develop through sharing fun activities together including games, sports, board games, crafts and talking.

Participating Secondary Schools:
  • Glenforest Secondary School
  • Chingucousy Secondary School
  • Harold Braithwaite Secondary School
  • Cardinal Leger Secondary School
  • St. Francis Xavier Secondary School
  • St. Edmund Campion Secondary School
  • Fletchers Meadow Secondary School.
