Vision & Mission


Partnering to transform the potential of Ontario’s children and youth through mentoring.


Ontario Mentoring Coalition: The champion of children and youth mentoring in Ontario. Championing involves convening people/agencies across sectors; building knowledge and capabilities; building the case for mentoring; and raising awareness.

Four Strategic Priorities

  • Convene – Engage organizations that are either currently delivering, or are interested in delivering, Children and Youth Mentoring programs and services to become a part of the Ontario Mentoring Coalition and participate in the fulfillment of the Coalition’s mandate.
  • Build Knowledge and Capabilities – Collect knowledge, articulate elements of effective practice, create communities of practice and effectively disseminate information to enable members to efficiently develop and deliver high quality Children and Youth Mentoring programs.
  • Build the Case – Establish standard metrics and measure the benefits of Children and Youth Mentoring, thereby enabling effective sector advocacy by the Ontario Mentoring Coalition and its members.
  • Raise Awareness – Communicate the value of Children and Youth Mentoring to social service and private sector organizations that are not currently engaged in Children and Youth Mentoring, and share the benefits of joining or supporting the Ontario Mentoring Coalition.
