We like to send each cat/kitten that is adopted home with a blanket for their carrier and to help them to adjust to their new home.

Volunteers will become a mentor to a young child who is struggling to read. Meeting together in the library, they will read, play literacy games and have fun. The focus is to help the child develop strong literacy skills that will give them the confidence to read independently. 
 
Mentors must be a role model to their buddy, and keep the meetings interesting and engaging by thinking creatively and planning activities based on their buddy's interests and reading challenges.

The Peer Project / Youth Assisting Youth York Region, Community-based Peer Mentoring Program
Change a Life. Become a Mentor. 
 
We need volunteers aged 16 to 29 to go one-on-one with an at-risk or newcomer kid! 
Who are we? 
The goal of The Peer Project is simple: help at-risk and newcomer children and youth find their way, by pairing them with a youth mentor who can offer support and guidance. 
How does it work? 
We pair you with a child (aged 6 to 15) based on common interests, background and where you live. From there, the mentoring begins, with ongoing support from us. 
You will share experiences, skills, and hobbies and inspire a younger youth to stay on the right track. You can volunteer on your schedule (3 hours per week) and close to home. P.S. applicants must live in Toronto or York Region. Please do not apply if live outside these areas. 
What’s in it for you? 
In a tough job market, being a mentor to an at-risk kid shows community leadership, an attribute that all employers love. 
You’ll make a real difference that counts in the life of a child 
You get to do fun stuff for FREE, like attending professional sporting events such as Raptors or Jays games; our annual 3 day Summer Camp up North; and other cool field trips such as Canada’s Wonderland or Wild Water Kingdom.
