Are you a restaurant hostess or owner?  Do you work in a capacity where you are the first person to greet and make customers feel welcomed? Would you like to share your expertise with a student who shares your passion for excellent customer relations?

We currently have a young woman who is interested in exploring the role of restaurant hostess (or other hostess-type role). She is very social, loves to be around people and eager to explore different roles that she might want to take on after high school.  She is hoping to connect with someone who could provide her 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.

If this sounds like something you would enjoy contact Sarah Ellis-Pierron at or 519-520-8268 for more information on this or any other mentorship opportunities. Check out our website at:
