Virtual Mentoring Programs & Activities

Online Youth Mentoring Programs & Support

To ensure physical distancing does not mean social disconnection, Youth Assisting Youth has created a collection of virtual programming and activities to help our youth mentors and mentees to stay connected during this challenging time.

The power of mentoring relationships is important, now more than ever! We continue to facilitate empowering, life-changing mentoring relationships for at-risk and newcomer youth who are facing adversity, even if the way that we create and support those relationships looks a little different as we do it digitally.

Looking for volunteer opportunities through the COVID-19 crisis and beyond?

Do you live within the Toronto or York Region area? Are you between the age of 16 and 29? Do you have 3 hours a week to spare for a year? Volunteering to mentor youth during this time period will look different than it normally does, but the impact will still be life-changing.
