Change a Life... Become a Peer Mentor!

We need volunteers aged 16 to 29 to go one-on-one with an at-risk or newcomer kid! Help your mentee to make good decisions and achieve big things through the power of friendship!

Who are we?

Youth Assisting Youth is a GTA and York Region based non-profit that supports newcomer and at-risk youth ages 6-15. We pair children with older mentors to help them to develop their social skills, leadership abilities, and resilience. Our goal is to help kids stay strong and have fun through the magic of friendship.

It only takes 3 hours a week – the time it takes to watch a hockey game, go to a movie, or play some video games. By spending quality time with your mentor, you are helping them to become more confident, independent, and resilient. You’ll also have the chance to attend free events like Raptors and Blue Jays games, trips to Canada’s Wonderland, bowling nights, and so much more with your mentee!

How does it work?

  • We pair you with a child (aged 6 to 15) based on common interests, background and where you live. From there, the mentoring begins, with ongoing support from us.
  • You will share experiences, skills, and hobbies and inspire a young person to help them develop their confidence and resiliency.
  • You can volunteer on your schedule (3 hours per week over one year) and close to home.
  • All mentors must be between the ages of 16 and 29. MALE MENTORS ARE IN HIGH DEMAND!
