Teen In School Mentoring

Program Description

A program offered in cooperation with Alberta Ed and the Alberta Mentoring Partnership. This unique and valuable program provides high school students with the opportunity to mentor younger students at the elementary school, while receiving high school credits for their involvement. The students play games, do crafts and just enjoy spending time together for one hour each week within the school setting. We are working in conjunction with Ponoka Secondary Campus and Ponoka Elementary School in providing this program in the community.
