Children Rising Mentorship Program
Click here to apply!
The Children Rising Mentorship Program gives UofM students the opportunity to engage in a cross-cultural learning exchange and mentorship partnership with schoolchildren from Skownan First Nation. UofM participants take part in two weekend visits to Skownan First Nation, and participate in three Saturday program days in Winnipeg.
During these sessions, mentors and mentees will learn about Anishinabe culture, take part in low organized games, crafts, educational programming offered by our partner CareerTrek (careertrek.ca), as well as a variety of other fun activities! Each U of M student is also responsible for communicating with their mentee through-out the programming year. Participants are eligible for recognition on their Co-Curricular Record (CCR). A complete list of program dates is available in the application package.
Drop-in information sessions will be held on: September 13th, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and September 14th, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. (202 Helen Glass)
Application deadline has been extended: September 28, 2012
Cost: The program is free and includes food, accommodation and transport during program weekends. Participants are responsible for the cost of obtaining a Criminal Record Check and Child Abuse Registry Check.
