Mentors

Mentors are the glue that bind the Youth Futures program together, providing one-on-one wrap-around guidance for participants, from the first day of Leadership Training, to the last day of Employment.

Many of our mentors are returning Youth Futures graduates!

General responsibilities of a mentor include:

  • Ensuring their youth attend program dates.
  • Address any concerns or questions they might have.
  • Encouraging youth to set learning objectives, and to help them recall and apply their training.
  • Acting as a liaison with the employers of their youth during their summer placements.
  • Help coordinate program events.

If you are currently in post-secondary, and are interested in becoming a mentor, please contact Ayane Bouh at ayane.bouh@ottawa.ca.
