My Role As A Mentor
My mentee is 13 years old. We like to do a variety of activities including physical pursuits – baseball, walking the dog, snow- ball fights, bowling, swimming,ping pong and most recently – horseshoes! As well, we have baked together, gone to movies, volunteered together, and sometimes meet for hot chocolate or milk shakes!! She also likes it when I go to her volleyball and basketball games.
What Motivated Me To Get Involved
I was an In School Mentor for a year in Sherwood Park until I was transferred to Grande Prairie for work. It was a wonderful program and I could see the benefit through- out the school year for both my mentee and me! It led me to want to volunteer again in Grande Prairie. Volunteering at any level is important as I believe that all people in a community have a responsibility to ‘give back’.
What I Enjoy Most About Being A Mentor
I enjoy seeing my mentee smile and laugh. Her face lights up and I am happy when I know that she’s happy.
