The Future Leaders 12-week program supports youth in grades 10 to 12 by providing youth with positive role models through one-on-one mentorship, developing skills and sharing knowledge through tailored workshops, and offering the opportunity to contribute to their community while gaining work experience in a volunteer placement.


From June 13 to September 2, post-secondary mentors will communicate virtually on a weekly basis with a high school mentee to help with post-secondary school applications, scholarship applications, questions about post-secondary programs and careers, and questions about finances, mental wellbeing, and academic workload.
