The Building Social Emotional Resiliency in Children (BSER)Program is recruiting Adult volunteers who will function as Mentors to help oversee the teaching and building of social emotional resiliency among children and youth through mental wellness activities in the Chilliwack School District. The program  aims to teach inner school elementary school aged children social, emotional and mental wellness strategies through a multi-layered mentorship model.

Requirements:

  • 2-3 hours per week during one school day for approx. 5 months
  • 1 Saturday in September for training
  • Drivers licence, drivers abstract and criminal record check

Full training, education, guidance and ongoing supervision is provided to mentors in the program to help them feel equipped and build skill and confidence in acting as mentors themselves to high school students and elementary school students. This program has helped students not only get training, experience and the opportunity to make valuable contacts, but it has been described by many as personally fulfilling.
