BECAUSE MENTORING
IS A PLUS

What happens after the interview?

The Plusone staff will contact you to let you know if you have been chosen for the volunteering position. If you are selected your references will be checked and will have to complete a criminal background check. Following these verifications you will again be contacted by the Plusone staff, provided you have passed both the reference and criminal background checks you will be invited to attend mentoring training.

You will be matched with a youth from your community, aged 10 to 17, with whom you share interests and/or other commonalities. All mentors are given the opportunity to specify any preferences they might have regarding their mentee.

Who will I mentor?

How long does the mentoring last?

On average, the mentoring relationship lasts roughly 12 months. The Plusone program model allows for participation ranging from 9 to 15 months depending on how the youth progresses.

How will mentoring affect my schedule?

The Plusone program model asks for weekly mentor-mentee meetings, which last for 2 to 3 hours, for the first 6 months of the program cycle. After the 6-month mark, mentoring meetings progressively decrease in frequency as the youth begins their transition out of the program by replacing mentoring activities with other pro-social activities in their community.

“It’s an incredible opportunity to help young people discover their best selves. I didn’t have access to this kind of program when I was young, and yet I really needed it.”
- Michael, mentor
