Volunteer to Start Something
What if every child finished high school, went to college or university, got a job and gave back to our community? Wouldn't that be something?

We Are Recruiting!

We are currently looking for 6-8 Male Mentors to facilitate our New Group Program for Young Men. No experience? That's ok, we will provide the training and support!

Our new Switch Gears Program is designed to engage male youth in grades 7 and 8 through fun and engaging activities that will promote positive and healthy social, emotional and mental health skills.  Studies show that our mentoring services help kids stay in school, avoid risky behaviour, and experience first-hand the importance of helping others in their community.

To learn more about our new Switch Gears program and how you can apply to become a Mentor click here.
