Our mentoring program provide one-to-one support to young people.

By creating a relationship based on trust and open communication, mentors help kids foster a sense of belonging, build self-confidence and learn new skills and passions. Talking and spending time with engaged adults provides children with positive experiences during periods of heightened brain development. That kind of positive mentoring can help children build a solid foundation that prepares them to adapt to the future demands of the adult world.

Spending time with a young person may seem simple, but science tells us that healthy interactions with supportive adults boosts children’s brain development, mental health, and well being. It doesn’t take any special skills or accomplishments to be a mentor. If you find yourself reading this, you already have what it takes: an interest in making a difference in the life of a child.

Become a mentor and help a young person do better in school, understand their strengths, and reach for their goals. Your presence, time, support, advice, friendship and constructive role modelling can make a big difference.

Our mentoring program provide one-to-one support to young people.

Skillcity will broker the relationship between a company or individuals and school, and offer training and support to volunteers.

Our mentoring programs involve employee volunteers supporting a child or young person on an ongoing basis. Participating pupils may have additional needs or be facing challenges at school. Current programmes include:

Mentoring Opportunities

Elementary Mentoring

Visit an elementary school once a week or bi-weekly and help a child develop specific skills. Companies and individuals can be partnered with a local school and each volunteer will be matched with a pupil for the academic year.

Junior Mentoring

Help a middle-school student struggling with the transition to high school. Mentors meet with their mentees once a week and set challenges, aiming to improve their confidence and motivation.

What people say?

Excerpts from testimonials gathered from Skillcity’s programs.

This program helped me to build a great list of resources. It was very well planned and well worth the time investment. I definitely feel more prepared and ready to tackle my next steps in my business venture. Also having these contacts is a great feeling, as it makes me feel like I have a support network already in place and a whole bunch of resources I can use to my benefit!"

Before this session, I really hadn't thought about my personal qualities, abilities and talents. Actually, I thought I had no talents at all, but now I see that I have some creative talents. I can now create video game stories with online tools, and even co-create with my friends, even if we can't meet up because of COVID-19. We can actually create video game characters and sell to big companies and make some money. This stuff is really cool."

"I was really getting bored and frustrated with the rules: 'don't go there', 'social distancing', 'you can't go out with your friends'... so many rules. Now, I have something to do with my friends online, we can create cool fun stuff online, and not have to worry about wearing masks or social distancing. That's what I really like about this Skillcity program.

Now I can have a little breather; while my kids are developing new skills and making positive connections at the same time. Wow! what a relief! Thank you Skillcity. I don't want this to end (lol)."
