Start2Finish’s mission is to break the cycle of child poverty by providing ongoing educational support to Canada’s at risk children throughout their school years, nurturing mind, body and social health so they are empowered to succeed and become role models for change.

This mission is achieved by our dedicated volunteers/mentor Coaches. The programs at Start2Finish encourage literacy, healthy active living, and play. As a result, students stay in school, build self-confidence and develop positive friendships with mentors and peers. With mentor Coaches, students discover the possibilities of a brighter future.

The mentor's role includes: leading physical activity, word of the day,      journal time and reading with children.
