For volunteers

Become 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.

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 left many young people feeling alone and disconnected. Many are struggling to finish school and find jobs.

Worried about the time commitment?

Find opportunities that fit your schedule.

Whether you want to volunteer once a week or once a month, you can find mentorship opportunities that fit your schedule.

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.

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:

more likely to report good or excellent mental health.

as likely to have completed high school.

more likely to have pursued further education after high school.
