Opportunity Description:

Seeking Virtual Youth Mentors Student Links is an initiative by Community Living Ontario. Student Links is a program specifically for students between the ages of 14-21 with an emphasis on providing inclusiveness for all. We match students with a mentor in their community with whom they share common interests. Students are provided with an opportunity to explore a role based on the their passions and interests, practice hard and soft skills and network. This can help students to form decisions about the choices available to them upon graduation. The role of a mentor is a highly rewarding one, and can take many forms. I seek people who are passionate about their work, and those who want to share their expertise with someone who might not otherwise be exposed to such experiences. Whether you’re interested in horticulture, fine arts, fashion design, automotive mechanics, coding, or something else entirely, this is your chance to create a meaningful connection and help guide a young person in your community through an important time in their life.   There is no requirement in terms of time commitments. A mentorship is formed with the help of the Program Coordinator and can take many forms depending on the availability of the mentor and student. Please note – normally mentor-student matches are done in-person, however due to the current COVID restrictions, we are connecting students and mentors virtually. If this sounds like something you would enjoy, please contact Sarah Utting at or 613-349-2733 for more information on this or any other mentorship opportunities.
