Urban Native Youth Association (UNYA) has been supporting the health and wellbeing of Indigenous youth in the Metro Vancouver area for over 30 years. As a respected non-profit, charitable organization, we recognize Indigenous youth as experts in their own lives, and strive to provide youth with programs and opportunities that are relevant and meaningful to them.
About the Mentorship Program:
The mandate of the Mentorship Program is to connect Indigenous youth, ages 12 to 15, to volunteer mentors in the community. With the support of positive role-models, youth have the opportunity to realize their strengths and work towards future goals. Our aim is to empower youth and provide them with the tools they need to make positive choices and changes, helping them grow into strong, capable and confident adults.
Volunteer Position Description:
We are seeking committed volunteer mentors, from all backgrounds, to engage in meaningful and supportive relationships with 12 to 15-year-old Indigenous youth. Volunteer Mentors will meet with their youth throughout the month, and participate in one-on-one, fun, consistent and goal-oriented activities together. Both Indigenous and non-Indigenous persons are encouraged to apply.
Volunteer Mentors report to the Mentorship Program Manager.
