Child & Youth

Six different student mentorship services that make a meaningful and positive impact to the children and youth of our community

Our Child & Youth Programs

We believe that a positive adult role-model is vital to the healthy progression of every child.

Mentoring Program

Our Mentors build positive relationships and trust by meeting with mentees for 30 minutes on a weekly basis, for a determined period of time (up to a whole year). In these meetings, the Mentor and Mentee build rapport and trust through various activities that focus on self-esteem, communication skills, and coping skills.

Topics often discussed include: making friends, anger, teasing and bullying, not being understood, and how family/home life affects mental health.

*For each school, the appointed main referral contact will be required to complete mentee progress surveys, and meet with the Mentor to give mentee updates during the school year.

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)

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.
