In the In School Mentoring program a volunteer meets with a child once a week right at the child's school. One on one visits provides children with a friend to talk to and share the experiences of growing up with. When they meet they play activities such as board games, crafts or just hang out in the playground.
The In School Mentoring program requires a weekly visit of 1 hour for the duration of the school year. Matches do not meet over the summer break or during other school holidays. Studies show that mentoring helps kids stay in school, avoid risky behavior such as bullying, and grow up having more respect for family, peers and community.
