Group Mentoring offers a variety of interactive after school programs designed to assist in the development of social skills.

The activities provide students with opportunities to self-reflect, learn about themselves, problem solve by thinking through challenges, and develop tools for building and maintaining social connections. Grade 9 students are required to sign up for at least 1 semester (12 Wks). Students may sign up for semester 1, semester 2 or both on the day that DOES NOT conflict with their assigned tutoring days. There will be a field trip/activity at the end of each semester for students who have attended the majority of the 12 week sessions. The safe walk will be provided to and from the Pathways office for students who wish to have this support.
