First Nations, MĂŠtis and Inuit Youth Mentors Program

Our Mission: To engage Aboriginal youth in a culturally sensitive, safe and welcoming environment. Program Objectives: To provide Aboriginal youth with fun, positive ways to connect with U of L students. To foster confidence and provide positive Aboriginal role models. To encourage educational success. To provide support and motivation to youth in their daily lives.

What is Mentorship? Mentorship is a supportive relationship between a U of L student mentor and youth mentees (two students to each mentor). Mentorship enables the participants to share common interests and spend time together in social activities such as basketball or hockey games, the U of L climbing wall, bowling, pow wows or other shared activities. How often do we meet? Mentors and mentees meet twice a month.

Who can be a mentor? Aboriginal U of L students with approved applications who are able to commit to a minimum or two semesters (8 months). Who can be mentored? Aboriginal students, aged 12-17, enrolled in school in Lethbridge or on the Blood or Peigan Reserves who have parental permission. How much does it cost? There is no charge to be involved. The program will cover the cost of activities and refreshments.
