About the Position
Position: 2545 - Volunteer Mentor/Teacher - Basketball
Organization: Community Living Ontario
Location: Mississauga, Brampton, Caledon

Goal

'Student Links' is an initiative by Community Living Ontario. Our goal is to promote inclusiveness for those living with an intellectual disability. Student Links is a program specifically for students between the ages of 14-21. We match these students with a mentor in their community with whom they share common interests. Students are provided with an opportunity to explore different roles based on their interests, to practise hard and soft skills, and to network. This helps them form decisions about the choices available to them upon graduation.


Description

Are you a people person? Do you love coaching Basketball? Care to share your passion for the game with a student who is also interested in getting more involved in basketball in Mississauga? As his mentor, you will encourage the student to learn more about the sport and show him what he can do with his talent. If you would like to invite him to your coaching sessions and teach him how to develop his talent and connect to other players or events in the community please contact us at (249)358-0257.
