What would you tell your 12-year-old self? Mentor Grade 7 boys and girls in our Youth Education Programs! Welcome to My Life, That’s Just Me, Boys 4 Real and Being Me are YWCA after-school programs in Vancouver and Surrey. As a mentor, you’ll boost self-esteem and confidence among Grade 7 girls and boys, giving them the tools to achieve a smooth transition to high school.
We deliver our after-school programs with the help of a team of intergenerational volunteer mentors. Two young adults (Facilitators), one High School Ambassador and one mature mentor, known as a Wisdom Champion, lead each program. Our programs offer a variety of activities and are delivered over nine weeks in select elementary and high schools.
Fall sessions run from mid-October to December
Spring sessions run from mid-February to April
