Bigs on Campus Youth Mentorship Program

Peel HIV/AIDS Network (PHAN). A group of students collaborating on a project.


Program Overview

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 Wednesday evening from 6:45 pm-7:45 pm, in-person, at UTM starting mid-October 2022 through to mid-March 2023.
