Scadding Court Mentorship Program
With the start of the new academic year, the Scadding Court Mentorship Program (SCMP) is looking for volunteer mentors to join our team! The SCMP is a community affairs program supported by the Faculty of Medicine.
What exactly is the SCMP?
The SCMP is an initiative that brings together inner city children (ages 6-12) with volunteer mentors from the University of Toronto. Through a wide range of activities, the program promotes fostering positive relationships to encourage leadership, academic and social development. Activities are engaging and educational, ranging from field trips to the Ontario Science Centre, TIFF Kids, ice skating at Nathan Phillips Square, to on-site visits from the Toronto Wildlife Centre and fun gardening projects (just to name a few)! A weekly lunch is also provided for all participants.
When/where is it?
The program is a shared mentorship (two mentors to a mentee), thereby requiring a 2-hr commitment on alternating Saturdays from 12pm-2pm. The program runs from November to early May (excluding holidays and March break) at the Scadding Court Community Centre (Bathurst & Dundas). The SCMP is a popular program among the neighbourhood children (they really look forward to it!) so we ask that those who sign up are committed to attending their scheduled sessions every other Saturday.
How do you sign up?
