Culturally-relevant Mentorship Program for Youth 12 – 18
This program runs year-round and is shaped by the youths’ interests, with a focus on developing self-efficacy, strong support networks, employment and life skills, and a passion for higher education.
The programming includes:
- Weekly tutoring in core school subjects
- Working with mentors to explore career options
- Visiting workplaces and leaders in their professional settings
- Leadership development
How to Join the Program
The mentorship and tutoring program is open to current members of Hope Blooms. If a youth expresses an interest in a certain field, Hope Blooms reaches out to the community to pair them up with a mentor.
The program scheduling is flexible to meet the needs of youth and mentors. It is worked around school, extracurriculars and other Hope Blooms activity, and the availability of mentors. Regular meetings could be weekly, bi weekly, or monthly, even one-offs.
