Newmarket Public Library, Newmarket - Park Avenue, Public Library
Newmarket Public Library, 438 Park Avenue, Newmarket, Ontario
Volunteers will become a mentor to a young child who is struggling to read. Meeting together in the library, they will read, play literacy games and have fun. The focus is to help the child develop strong literacy skills that will give them the confidence to read independently. 
Mentors must be a role model to their buddy, and keep the meetings interesting and engaging by thinking creatively and planning activities based on their buddy's interests and reading challenges.

The Peer Project / Youth Assisting Youth York Region, Community-based Peer Mentoring Program
close to home
We need volunteers aged 16 to 29 to inspire at-risk or newcomer kids to thrive! 
Join our amazing team of mentors for a rewarding opportunity to build your resume and positively impact a young person's life!  
The goal of The Peer Project:Youth mentors help at-risk and newcomer children and youth find their way. As a mentor you will offer support and guidance to a younger youth in your community. It only takes 3 hours a week– the time it takes to watch a hockey game, go to a movie, or play some video games. 
How does it work? 
We pair you with a child (aged 6 to 15) based on common interests, background and where you live. From there, the mentoring begins, with ongoing support from us. 
You will share experiences, skills, and hobbies and inspire a younger youth to stay on the right track. 
You can volunteer on your schedule (3 hours per week) and close to home. 
And it works. 98% of the kids we work with stay in school and out of trouble with the law.  
"The Peer Project gave me the chance to instill positive self-worth in a child… and gain a very dear friend.” – Krishana, Mentor 
What’s in it for you? 
In a tough job market, being a mentor to an at-risk kid shows community leadership, an attribute that all employers love. 
You’ll make a real difference that counts in the life of a child 
You get to do fun stuff for FREE, like attending professional sporting events such as Raptors or Jays games; our annual 3 day Summer Camp up North; and other cool field trips such as Canada’s Wonderland and much more.
