The Mentorship Program builds community, creates leaders & changes lives.

We focus on supporting the settlement and integration of newcomer immigrant and refugee youth entering grades 7-12 during the school year and in the summer. The program provides information, resources, and support to facilitate positive transitions for youth into Canadian schools and communities.

A unique aspect of the program involves the participation of Peer Mentors, youth who were once newcomers themselves, who provide 1:1 support for incoming newcomer youth during programming and community connections activities.

Youth in the Mentorship Program have the opportunity to…

  • participate in fun group activities & field trips
  • make new friends
  • develop teamwork & life skills
  • practice speaking English in a safe & respectful environment
  • enhance leadership abilities & confidence
  • learn about Canada & Calgary
  • meet inspiring community speakers & leaders

“Being a peer mentor helps me explore new things such as leading other people, and it helps me and my own identity. I helped newcomers by giving them a school tour, showing them classes, and acquainting them with the school so that they won’t feel lonely. From this experience, I learned how to communicate with other newcomers, how to lead our peers and build confidence.”
