QUANTUM is looking for individuals to mentor high school students in a variety of skills areas in Picton, Belleville and Trenton. Please CLICK HERE to view the skills wish list.
Quantum is a long-term, multi-component intervention program aiming to reduce dropout rates and delinquency in students facing challenges as they enter high school. The program provides wrap-around care for the duration of the students’ high school career. This unique program aims to eliminate barriers to success by providing educational, developmental and service opportunities coupled with a sustained relationship with a trained youth worker who will remain with the student for the duration of the four year program.
If you or your organization would be interested in contributing time to the John Howard Society’s Quantum program, please contact Diana Gregory, Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 613-921-5347.
