Summary: Study Buddy Program (rolling intake, apply anytime)

Locations: Port Coquitlam, Coquitlam, Port Moody, Richmond

The Study Buddy Program nurtures the self-esteem of female, transgender, and non-binary children and youth (our Little Sisters) by matching them with a volunteer who offers them educational support which they otherwise cannot afford due to financial constraints.

With the support of a Study Buddy tutor, Little Sisters (ages 7-17) are encouraged and equipped to improve their educational performance and set appropriate academic goals which contributes to their overall confidence.

The Study Buddy program is a weekly one-to-one mentoring relationship for a minimum of a six month commitment that focuses on school work.

The program strives to do the following:

  • Provide an academic role model to Little Sisters (ages 7-17)
  • Increase educational performance
  • Promote the importance of staying in school and increase school attendance
  • Enhance educational goal setting
  • Decrease disruptive behaviour in school
