A mentor can provide you informal support as you address your concerns.

We can match a participant (mentee) on a one-to-one basis with a trained volunteer.  The mentee will receive support in an informal setting within a six-month or one-year contract. Mentorship is NOT counselling. Sometimes a woman should work with a Counsellor first.  This Mentoring Program Brochure   explains the program.

  • Supportive Mentors assist women to increase their support system, to break their isolation, and to be more in charge of their lives.
  • Literacy/English Conversation Mentors assist women to improve their writing, reading and numeric skills.

If you are interested in having a mentor, the Coordinator of Volunteers will ask you to complete an application form, and she will meet with you to learn more about how we can help.  View this flyer to learn more about the program. Info for women seeking mentoring support
