The Banff Mentoring Program offers a great opportunity for you to get to know a child and watch them grow. As a mentor, you will spend one hour a week during school hours with a child from Banff Elementary School or Banff Community High School. Spend your time together in the school or go out and try a range of activities you are both interested in.
What makes a good mentor?
Someone who likes spending time with kids
Someone who's encouraging and can offer inspiration
Someone with a range of interests and who is open to ideas and new activities
We've all been touched by someone who brought possibility and inspiration into our lives. There's a waiting list of young people who can benefit from your life experiences.
The mentor program recruits, screens and trains adult volunteers to mentor students.
