Are you an auto detailer or love to keep your vehicle in pristine condition? Would you like to share this passion with a high school student who is eager to learn how to detail a car inside and out?
We currently have a young man who loves to clean cars and has amazing attention to detail. He would love to connect with someone who has experience, whether professionally or personally, in detailing cars, cleaning techniques and generally preparing him for a possible future career in automotive detailing.
Student Links is an initiative by Community Living Ontario. Our goal is to promote inclusiveness for those living with a disability. Student Links is a program for students between the ages of 14-21. We match these students with a mentor in their community with whom they share common interests. Students are provided with an opportunity to explore a role based on their passions and interests, practice hard and soft skills and network. This helps them form decisions about the choices available to them upon graduation.
The role of a mentor is a highly rewarding one, and can take many forms. I seek people who are passionate about their work, and those who want to share their expertise with someone who might not otherwise be exposed to such experiences. There is no requirement in terms of time commitments. A mentorship is formed with the help of the program coordinator and can take many forms depending on the availability of the mentor and student.
Please note - normally mentor-student matches are done in-person, however due to the current pandemic situation, we are connecting students and mentors virtually. This might involve preparing pre-recorded instructional videos for the student, meeting over Zoom to share information and answer questions, and possibly get together in person once social distancing limitations are lifted (depending on location and availability).
If this sounds like something you would enjoy contact Sarah Ellis-Pierron at firstname.lastname@example.org or 519-520-8268 for more information on this or any other mentorship opportunities. Check out our website at https://communitylivingontario.ca/en/student-links/
