Stars Mentoring Program

BGC of Wetaskiwin

Provides Wetaskiwin school children 6 to 13 years of age with the opportunity to be matched with an adult mentor in their school environment.

Service provides:

  • a program that contributes to the development of positive self-esteem, school performance and attendance, social skills, and self-confidence
  • an employer-supported opportunity where the volunteer can leave his / her place of employment during work hours to give back to their community. Volunteers can pick the day and time that is most suitable for them and that will work into the child's school schedule.


  • one hour per week, in the child's school, doing activities of mutual interest such as playing games, reading, talking or just hanging out
  • an activity kit with games, craft supplies and other materials at each site

There are no meetings on school holidays or summer holidays as this is an in-school match only.
