Help a young person fulfill their dream

As a Covenant House Vancouver mentor you can give a young person the opportunity to learn, grow, and help smooth the transition into adulthood. Mentoring is a great way to give back to your community and help build brighter futures for youth who have not always had positive adult role models.

As a mentor, you’ll share your knowledge and experience while building a trusting, healthy relationship with young person in need. You will help equip them with essential life and career skills and the tools to make positive choices.
