One to One Mentoring

Big Brothers Mentoring

The Big Brothers mentoring program provides boys and young men with a role model to talk to and share the experiences of growing up with. Through regular outings, a relationship is developed between the mentor and the mentee, which is built on trust and common interests, and is supported by our experienced case-workers. The result is a life-changing experience for both the mentor and the mentee.

The Big Brothers mentoring program usually requires one regularly scheduled outing per week of between two and four hours and a minimum of a one year commitment.

Go Girls! Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds!

go-girls-logo

Go Girls! is a group mentoring program for girls ages 9-14 that focuses on physical activity, balanced eating and self-esteem. The single, most important goal of the program is to positively shape the lives of young women and girls by helping them build a positive self-image – setting them on a path to reach their full potential in life.

The Go Girls! program consists of multiple mentoring sessions, typically held over a ten-week period, within school facilities or at a partner site. Each 1.5-2 hour-long session is loosely structured around four themes: physical activity, healthy eating, self-esteem, and communication skills.

We are currently looking for Go Girls! Facilitators for the January to April 2018 sessions:

  • Tuesdays, 1:00 to 2:20 pm at Shoreline Community School (View Royal)
  • Wednesdays, 12:55 to 2:10 pm at Rockheights Middle School (Esquimalt)
  • Wednesdays, 6 to 8 pm at Panorama Recreation Centre (North Saanich)
