Mentors Matter

Happy International Mentoring Day! Some Other Solutions waves a proud salute to all the hard working mentors around the world that inspire youth and help shape the future of civilization! "How powerful would our world be if we had kids who were not afraid to take risks, who were not afraid to think, and who had a champion. Every child deserves a champion - an adult who will never give up on them, who insists on the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they possibly can be."- Rita Pierson #MentorsMatter #MentoringMonth Alberta Mentoring Partnership Fort McMurray Public School District Fort McMurray Catholic School District Youthvoiceswb Aurakey Digital Agency Northern Elite Football Some Other Solutions Child & Youth team ~ Isy Etc Dylan Elias James Vincent Pattie Dwyer Lydia JaneVideo provided by James Vincent (KUMA MEDIA)

In 2017 Some Other Solutions reached and mentored 19 schools in the community and surrounding area.

With our small and dedicated team, we’ve accomplish so much.

But there is still so much more to do.

Help them find their way…

Mentoring Resources

Mentoring, at its core, guarantees young people that there is someone who cares about them, assures them they are not alone in dealing with day-to-day challenges, and makes them feel like they matter. Research confirms that quality mentoring relationships have powerful positive effects on young people in a variety of personal, academic, and professional situations.

The Alberta Mentoring Partnership

The Alberta Mentoring Partnership is your mentoring resource for creative tools and resources that will help you support the AMP’s mission and the larger Alberta community. Every Albertan has a stake in the future of the province. Whether you want to make a difference in the life of a young person, connect with a mentoring organization near you, or strengthen your program offerings for Alberta’s youth, we can help. We know what it takes to build healthy and engaged citizens.
