Over 15,000 young people are waiting for a mentor, someone just like you.
The COVID-19 pandemic has left many young people feeling alone and disconnected. Many are struggling to finish school and find jobs.
Mentoring programs across Canada are connecting mentors and young people virtually through e-mentoring programs. Where it’s safe to do so, in-person programs are also starting to re-open.

Mentoring changes lives.
If you’ve ever had a mentor – at work, at school or in your life – then you know that mentoring can change lives. Many of us have had mentors, caring adults who supported us in our lives or careers. Young people who are mentored are:
53 percent more likely to report good or excellent mental health
Over 2x as likely to have completed high school
95 percent more likely to have pursued further education after high school
