The Youth Accelerator Project (YAP) is designed to help maximize the potential of all our youth, but particularly racialized youth.
With the support of a positive, caring adult, young people are motivated and inspired to performing well in school. A young person is more likely to become a well-rounded, independent adult with the help and guidance of a mentor.
This is why we focus on enabling youth to expand their minds, build confidence, and persevere through various challenges.
A4C will provide support for each mentor to ensure the mentoring experience is successful for both the mentor and the mentee. Our support includes an orientation session, training programs for mentors, and coaching support throughout the program.
This session will provide new mentors the opportunity to learn more about the program, which will help them get started.
There will be four 1-hour sessions that will focus on learning key development areas that will prepare and equip our mentors.
Ongoing Coaching and Support
We will constantly follow up with you throughout the program to get your feedback and provide support as needed.
