Are you a school custodian or a janitor? Do you clean and maintain work areas, schools or other public spaces? Do you have a desire to share your expertise with a student who shares your passion for the work?
We currently have a very eager young man who is hoping to become a custodian or janitor when he finished school. He loves to clean and prides himself on his attention to detail. He is very capable and is hoping to connect with someone who could provide him with some real world experience.
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 different roles based on their 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.
