Want to help Aboriginal youth become excited about learning and school?

Want to be a role model and make a positive impact on the lives of youth?

Want to gain volunteer experience and enhance your knowledge of Aboriginal history and culture?

Then apply to be an online mentor. We are currently looking for UBC students from all faculties who are over the age of 18 to be mentors.

As a mentor, you will be responsible for meeting online 2-3 hours a week with your mentee for a minimum of one school year (September – June). Mentors will support youth as they work through a curriculum that covers topics such as career and college/university exploration, goal setting and transition to college/university, challenges and school supports, time management skills and more. Additionally, mentors will also receive training in child safety; self-esteem and child development; activity planning; cultural awareness training (e.g. Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal worldviews on mentoring, understanding cultural identity, Aboriginal culture and history).

If you are interested, please go to the “get involved” section of our website to fill out an application. The deadline to apply is July 1, 2011.
