You may have seen an ad looking for mentors for new programs…in addition to the many offerings through various partners (which you can inquire about through the same form), there are two new opportunities in need of mentors immediately.
Exciting opportunity to be part of a new mentoring program in Winnipeg and earn a little bit of extra money! This short-term mentoring program (name to T.B.D.), aims to provide friendship and guidance to children who’ve been displaced from their home communities for treatment of family medical needs (primarily dialysis) in Winnipeg. Mentors are required to meet with mentees for 3 hours per week from March until June. Mentors in this position will receive an honorarium of $18 dollars per hour/$54 dollars per week (to be paid at the end of each month.)
You will be matched to 3-5 middle school age youth in the Garden City area. Your role will be to provide safe, fun, and consistent small group and one on one activities based on their interests. You will help your mentees attend after-school activities, cultural activities, special events, or a community center, etc.. You will share with your mentees, their parents/guardians, the United Mentoring Network, and school staff, a commitment to fostering a safe, enjoyable, meaningful, and healthy mentoring relationship.
A valid driver’s license and access to a vehicle is required. An interest in or already possessing some Indigenous cultural knowledge is an asset. The United Mentoring Network understands the importance of Indigenous (First Nations, Metis or Inuit) mentors for Indigenous youth, therefore encourage Indigenous persons to apply; please self-declare in your application. A police record check, child abuse registry check, and references will be required. The cost of the record check will be covered if offered the position.
Please apply directly with a cover letter and resume to: email@example.com
After-school mentors needed!
Once per week on Fridays from 3:30-5pm, mentors are needed to support a new partnership between West Central Community Programs and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Winnipeg.
You will be matched with 1-2 mentees to provide more dedicated support to youth while program staff run the program and provide group supervision. There are dozens of youth in this program who could benefit from more attention and one on one time as they play in the BBBS activity space located beside the University of Winnipeg on Ellice.
Honorariums equivalent to $18 per hour will be provided.
All mentoring takes place on-site, with support provided by professional staff.
Ideal for University of Winnipeg students!
