HSCP Mentoring is a fun and rewarding experience!

  • Their mentee will join them for 1 day at a university course over the school year.

Testimonials

"The Human Services career Program is a great interactive way to get involved in the community and learn how to communicate" Jonas W. (CSS grade 10 student)

"This experience has been wonderful.  It has taught me various skills that I was completely unfamiliar with before, such as peer counseling and mindfulness.  Also, it has allowed me to work with mentees that have a lot in common with me.  It's amazing to know that my mentees trust me enough to share ideas, personal stories, and accomplishments.  I never thought that I could make a positive influence on the lives of young people. but thanks to this program I have.  This program has helped me grow as a person, while watching my mentees grow as individuals.  Thank you for this great opportunity.  Sincerely,                                                                                                   Simranjit Gill"
