Help her develop a love of learning... in school and in life!
The Study Buddy Mentoring program nurtures the self-esteem of girls by matching them with volunteers who offer them educational support. This program is for girls, ages 7 to 17, who need academic assistance and cannot access other tutoring services due to financial constraints.

The Study Buddy Mentoring program requires one tutoring session per week (1 hour) and a minimum 6 month commitment. Sessions take place at a mutually-agreeable location (i.e. library) after school or on weekends. You must be at least 19 years old to apply.

The program strives to do the following:

  • provide an academic role model to girls and young women (ages 7-17);
  • increase educational performance;
  • promote the importance of staying in school and increase school attendance;
  • enhance educational goal setting; and
  • decrease disruptive behaviour in school.

Study Buddies work together to set appropriate educational goals for the Little Sister. With the support of a Study Buddy tutor, Little Sisters are encouraged and equipped to improve their educational performance and meet their academic goals, which contributes to their overall self-esteem.
