Peer Mentoring

Peer Mentoring is a unique service that is offered in partnership with Community Living Prince Edward and local schools that facilitates inclusion.
  • Peer Mentoring fosters an inclusive school culture in which all student's contributions are encouraged and valued.
  • Friendships are formed that often last well beyond the school years.
  • CLPE staff are in the schools on a regular basis to work with leaders of the school to provide inclusion awareness, disability training, and support.
  • Staff recruit leaders to act as mentors and role models for inclusion.
  • Mentors are matched with students with a disability to promote inclusion in school activities, school events, school teams, sports, clubs, fashion shows, carnivals, etc.
  • Staff act as an on-site resource for staff, students and families to provide strategies and guidance and help maintain friendships that are formed.
  • CLPE staff also support mentors and students to expand peer mentoring beyond the walls of the school.
  • Students are included in local recreational activities, youth groups, afterschool events, fitness clubs, etc.
Peer Mentoring is funded by United Way of Quinte.
