Program and Fund Supporters

Government of PEI, Department of Social Development and Housing

We would like to thank the Government of Prince Edward Island for their ongoing support.  The $28,000 annual grant they provide ensures we can provide quality mentoring services across Prince Edward Island.

MBS Radio

By making us a Charity of Choice, MBS Radio has provided invaluable volunteer recruitment support throughout the year. We would like to thank the staff and management for their ongoing support on on air promotion of our need for volunteers.

United Way of Prince Edward Island

We are so excited to announce that we are powered by United Way of Prince Edward Island.  In March of 2020, they began supporting Teen Mentoring on Prince Edward Island with a $25,000 per year grant for two years, which ensures the program will continue to grow and thrive.  We would like to thank them for their continued support throughout the pandemic.

RBC Foundation

We would like to thank the RBC Foundation for providing the funding to create Launch Your Life, a post-secondary and career readiness program for youth. Their 2 year, $25,000 grant will help youth aged 14-24 gain new skills, build self-confidence, make meaningful connections, & explore their options for the future.

CN Halifax Community Board

The CN Halifax Community Board is committed to making our community a better place to live, work, and play. Their generous donation of $10,000 in support of the Launch Your Life Program will provide Island youth with the skills and knowledge they need to thrive in their careers and in life.

Guys Who Give a $hit

At the end of December, we were invited to make a presentation to the Guys Who Give a $hit group and we were thrilled that they chose to support us with a $10,000 donation. Mentoring is an essential service we must continue to provide to Island youth, especially in the middle of a pandemic.  Their support will enable us to help more Island children reach their full potential by supporting our programs during this difficult time.

Ted Rogers Community Grants

We are pleased to share that we have received a 2022 Ted Rogers Community Grant to further develop our Launch Your Life Program.  The $5000 grant will help us continue to offer this critical program to youth across our community, needed now more than ever.

Holland College

We were so excited to hold our Fall session of Launch Your Life Post-Secondary & Career Readiness program at Holland College.  We would also like to thank them for providing a safe space for our sessions and for being supportive of the goals of the program from the start.

Rotary Club of Charlottetown

We would like to thank the Rotary Club of Charlottetown for their generous donations of $7,000 to refresh the In-School Mentoring boxes.  Their donation will provide puzzles, board games, arts & crafts, and other supplies for the Activity Boxes that go to more than 20 schools across Prince Edward Island.  Our In-School mentors make connections with their Mentees while engaging in shared interests like putting together a puzzle or making a craft.

Kiwanis Club of Charlottetown

We want to thank the Kiwanis Club of Charlottetown for their $1200 donation to support In-School Mentoring. A mentor’s support can help keep youth engaged in school, build self confidence, develop soft skills & facilitate continued academic achievement.

Rodd Royalty

We want to thank our friends at the Rodd Royalty for hosting our Christmas party for our Bigs & Littles again this year.  We can’t thank the staff & management enough for providing everything we needed – a craft room, space for our Photo Booth, a wonderful traditional turkey lunch and space for a visit from Santa.
