Opportunity Description:

Youth Mentor Opportunity – Computer Programming Do you have experience in the computer programming world? Would you love the opportunity to assist a young person with developing essential digital skills and learning to code? We currently have a young man in the Kingston community who is very creative and loves working on the computer. He would love to learn how to code his own video game. 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. 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 situation, we are connecting students and mentors virtually. This might involve preparing pre-recorded instructional videos for the student, meeting over Zoom to share information and answer questions, or setting up a google classroom for example. Our hope is to move to in-person visits once restrictions are lifted. If this sounds like something you would enjoy contact Sarah Utting at sutting@communitylivingontario.ca or 613-349-2733 for more information on this or any other mentorship opportunities.
