Culture Connections Social Mentoring Program

Volunteer two hours a week helping a newcomer connect to their community through one-on-one engagement.

We believe that the first step in connecting to the community is to make friends and to socialize one-on-one. As a Social Mentor, you will volunteer two hours a week for three months with your newcomer mentee.

Together you will explore shared interests, learn about each other’s lives and build connections. Share your personal experiences as they start their life in Canada.

Social Mentors are individuals who are:

  • living in the Greater Vancouver area
  • familiar with Canadian life
  • fluent in English
  • age 23 or over
  • born in Canada or have moved to Canada 5 or more years ago

Are you a newcomer interested in expanding your social network and learning about Canadian culture? Join this program as a participant.
