Bigs On-Campus Youth Mentorship Program supports youth to develop social, academic and leadership skills in a structured group environment facilitated by UTM mentors. Bigs on Campus youth participants participate in fun and skill-based activities. Activities include sports, social outings, community tours, interactive learning and more. The Bigs On-Campus Youth Mentorship Program is in partnership with the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Peel and Halton Regions and provides programming for youth 9-14 years.
All Bigs On-Campus Youth Mentorship Program mentors are encouraged and supported to help their mentees explore post-secondary education, increase their confidence, and learn in a supportive environment.
This program runs every Tuesday evening from 6:45 pm-8:30 pm, in-person, at UTM starting mid-October 2023 through to mid-March 2024.
