Mentorship Program

Do you have community recreation leaders that need training? Are your leaders tired of always having to leave the community to be trained with information that doesn't help in community? That is EXACTLY why we created this program!

We have hired mentors in sport and recreation facilitation, that are trained and equipped to support your leaders' goals for themselves and the community. The mentorship is simple and adaptable; it consists of:

  • 1-year commitment
  • At least 3 visits to your community to have meetings, run programs and training/certification
  • Ongoing long distance support through relationships to plan programs, lessons and events
  • Sports equipment
  • Specific training and programs will be chosen by the community. We are here to support your ideas!

*A letter of support from Chief and council or Municipal governance is needed for this program
