Do you love to mix music, create playlists and use software or apps? Maybe you have some DJing experience? Would you love to share your passion with a young man, develop a friendship and explore music together?
We currently have a young man who loves music, and would love to connect with someone who could share his love of music mixing, creating playlists, and teach him to use mixing software, apps, etc.
Student Links is for students aged 14-21 who have a disability. These students are matched with an adult 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 Covid 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, or setting up a google classroom for example. Our hope is to move to in-person visits once restrictions are lifted.
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/
