Youth Mentorship Program

Do you want to give back to your community in a positive way?

Become a Youth Mentor!

The Youth Mentorship Program (YMP) at CCVT is open for all newcomer youth aged 12-25 years old. This program supports youth who are looking to make new friends, learn more about the Canadian culture, learn new and exciting things and have fun. Throughout the year, the youth will be matched with a local volunteer in the community who will mentor and help them to achieve their goals. Mentees and mentors are matched based on common interest, geographic proximity, and areas of need as well as similar gender. Both mentees and mentors will also be able to participate in workshops and events throughout the year that will focus on the areas of employment /entrepreneurship, educational achievement, and civic engagement/ leadership.

Requirements to join the program:

  • Must be 21+
  • Must live in the GTA
  • Must agree to a 1-year comitment
  • Must spend 4 hours a month with mentee
  • Must complete required documentation (i.e., police clearance)
  • Must participate in training 

To participate, fill out the Youth Mentor Application Form.
