This in-school mentoring program is a way to get involved with a child. It allows volunteer in-school mentors to share time with a mentee in their school during the school day. In-school mentors meet with their mentee following the 20-20-20 rule: 20 minutes of getting to know each other and catching up, 20 minutes of schoolwork, and 20 minutes of free time. In addition to friendship and overall support, the focus is on literacy and homework.

Mentees: Kids between 6 and 18 who need extra support with their schoolwork.
Mentor: Anyone over 18 who would like to help a child do better in school
Minimum Commitment: 1 hour per week throughout the school year
Availability: We run in-school mentoring programs at schools in Edmonton, Sherwood Park, Parkland and St. Albert.
When & Where: At the same time each week during the school day at a child’s school
