Manitoba Mentors supports skill-building, goal-oriented mentoring that encourages protégés to learn by doing. With the help and guidance of mentors, protégés can kick-start their careers. Mentors help them explore their interests, gain a realistic sense of their strengths and skills, get practical information about training, education and employment, and map out a career path. For some participants, the program can lead directly into the world of work.
Students in grades 9 and 10 benefit from group mentoring, which can involve guest speakers, workplace field trips, group discussions and activities.
Grade 11 and 12 students and young adults benefit from 1-to-1 mentoring, which can include internships, job placements, job shadowing and hands-on work projects.
