Change someone's life trajectory.
Support a young person's growth.
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.
Offer mentorship through video calls and online messaging.
Mentor a young person from a flexible, virtual setting.
Mentoring programs across Canada are connecting mentors and young people virtually through e-mentoring programs. In-person programs are also starting to re-open.
Mentor Connector lets you explore all the available e-mentoring and in-person opportunities in your community.
Not sure that you have what it takes to be a mentor?
You don't need any special skills to become a mentor. All you need is an open mind and an interest in making a difference in the life of a young person between the ages of 6 and 30.
Worried about the time commitment? Whether you want to volunteer once a week or once a month, you can find mentorship opportunities that fit your schedule.
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 have 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
