Big Brothers Big Sisters Edmonton & Area, in partnership with Alberta Advanced Education and Technology, are providing the High School Teen Mentoring Program, a school-based mentoring program where mentor-mentee matches meet for one hour per week to engage in relationship-building activities at an elementary school. This initiative aims to provide mentors and mentees access to good information about the world of work and potential options; programs that can support their long-term interests; and planning for the future. It is written for high school students who are selected to mentor elementary students. The program's mission is to enhance the healthy development of children and youth through mentoring relationships and to provide a path to post-secondary education. This handbook provides mentors with valuable information on: being a mentor; building mentoring skills; surprises and myths about mentoring; self-esteem for your mentee; developing conversation and listening skills; determining learning styles; as well as protecting oneself as a volunteer and procedures for reporting child abuse.
