During this study, we explored adults' views about youth mentoring as well as their interest and capacity to become mentors to young people outside of their immediate family.
Between September and November 2020, 3,500 adults in Canada participated in a nationally representative online survey.
Capturing the Mentoring Landscape
MENTOR Canada also conducted a sector survey to understand the prevalence, practices and scope of mentoring programs in Canada.
Mapping the Mentoring Gap
MENTOR Canada also conducted the first pan-Canadian study exploring young people’s access to caring, supportive people – or mentors – when they were aged 6-18, and whether such relationships influenced different parts of their lives. The goal of the survey was to understand whether youth mentoring needs are being met.
