YOUTH MENTORING CHILDREN AND HELPING THE COMMUNITY   Aurora  East Gwillimbury  Georgina  King Township  Markham  Newmarket  Richmond Hill  Vaughan  Whitchurch Stouffville  York Region 
The Peer Project / Youth Assisting Youth York Region, The Peer Project Toronto Office, Community-based Peer Mentoring Program
close to home
Join our amazing team of mentors for a rewarding opportunity to build your resume and positively impact a young person's life!  
 
The goal of The Peer Project:Youth mentors help at-risk and newcomer children and youth find their way. As a mentor you will offer support and guidance to a younger youth in your community. It only takes 3 hours a week– the time it takes to watch a hockey game, go to a movie, or play some video games. 
 
How does it work? 
We pair you with a child (aged 6 to 15) based on common interests, background and where you live. From there, the mentoring begins, with ongoing support from us. 
You will share experiences, skills, and hobbies and inspire a younger youth to stay on the right track. 
You can volunteer on your schedule (3 hours per week) and close to home. 
 
And it works. 98% of the kids we work with stay in school and out of trouble with the law.  
 
"The Peer Project gave me the chance to instill positive self-worth in a child… and gain a very dear friend.” – Krishana, Mentor 
 
What’s in it for you? 
In a tough job market, being a mentor to an at-risk kid shows community leadership, an attribute that all employers love. 
You’ll make a real difference that counts in the life of a child 
You get to do fun stuff for FREE, like attending professional sporting events such as Raptors or Jays games; our annual 3 day Summer Camp up North; and other cool field trips such as Canada’s Wonderland and much more.
