The Madeline Centre provides mentors for children who need support either in times of transition or to help them cope with specific problems. Usually these children are in need of less intense services, but who need help with issues like socialization, isolation, phobias, and emotional support.
Mentors typically develop close relationship with the child and support them in engaging in activities in the home and in the community. They help to expand the child’s horizons by introducing them to social, educational, volunteer and recreational opportunities. These are generally after school activities and may be from 5-15 hours a week.
