I have found this volunteering opportunity recently that would be awesome for any ladies looking to give back to Canada and enrich the lives of young women. I hope that some of you are interested and choose to apply.
“Big Sisters Canada are looking for volunteer mentors to empower young girls to embrace a healthy, active lifestyle!
This group mentoring program encourages physical activity, healthy eating and the development of a positive self-image among girls aged 11 – 14.
The Go Girls Program runs in selected Surrey, Burnaby, Vancouver and Coquitlam schools for girls in grades 6, 7 or 8 for two hours after school (typically 3:00-5:00pm) for 8 sessions. Each session, led by female volunteer mentors between the ages of 19 to 30, incorporates fun and educational activities to stimulate mentor-participant relationship building as well as group discussions about healthy living and emotional, social and cultural issues.
They are currently accepting applications for our Winter Term which runs for 8 weeks from the week of January 16th, 2017 to the week of March 6th, 2017. Mandatory training on Saturday January 7th, 2017.
We encourage applicants to submit applications as soon as possible as we process applications on a first come, first served basis. Please submit your application for our Winter Term no later than December 9th, 2016.”
