Are you passionate about building or repairing computers and other electronics? Do you like to take apart appliances, make small repairs or improvements and put them back together?  Would you like to share this passion with a young man who is eager to learn?

We currently have a young man who loves to take electronics and small appliances apart, learn the inner workings, make repairs and re-assemble them. He would love to connect with someone who shares this interest in the hopes of learning more and exploring possible future job roles associated with electronic repairs.

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 specifically 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 the student’s 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.

If this sounds like something you would enjoy contact Sarah Ellis-Pierron at sellispierron@communitylivingontario.ca 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/

Additional Opportunity Information: 
Although the student resides in London, Ontario - the mentor could be anywhere in Ontario.

networking events or a job in the nonprofit sector, we can help.
