Big Brother - Big Sister (Growing Up)
The In-School mentoring program provides youth with a role model and a friend to talk to and share the experiences of growing up within school grounds.
For one hour a week, mentors meet with their mentee and engage in activities such as board games, crafts or just hang out on school grounds. The In-School mentoring program requires a weekly visit of one hour for the duration of the school year. Matches do not meet over the summer break or during other school holidays.
