In School mentor program celebration

Mentors, mentees and parents gathered for the annual celebration of this program in Caroline School on Friday, June 4. Adults from the surrounding community spend one hour a week with an elementary student in a pre-arranged matching program to build an ongoing relationship that lasts all year. Sometimes the same match continues over several years. The program is run under the umbrella of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Innisfail and is supervised locally by Leslie Cooper-Shand who can be contacted by prospective mentors on 403-507-8444. The In School mentor program is run in schools across North America and has demonstrated positive outcome for participants, young and old.
