SET Mentoring Project is an initiative of the Newfoundland & Labrador Association for Community Living and is funded by the Department of Human Resources Labour & Employment, in partnership with the Green Bay and Gambo Employment Corporations, and the Nova Central School District.
It's intended to help students transition into the community and/or work place after finishing high school.
This will be achieved by connecting them with adult trained "mentors" in the community.
The connection between students and mentors will be facilitated by a "Mentor Coordinator" working in concert with school personnel, parents and community.
Through the assistance of experienced adult mentors, students will have opportunities to learn about careers, explore community and volunteer options and alternatives for when they finish high school.
Additional in school support and training will assist students in social interaction and relationship building; and it will help students transition to community and/or the work place after high school. It will give them more opportunity for decision-making.
Mentoring will be individualized for each student.
