Surrey preteens took part in a Peer Mentorship Program to build leadership skills and create a project online to help the community.

The Peer Mentorship Program was designed to provide preteens (ages 10-12) with meaningful virtual programming, in a safe and nurturing environment, that is open to everyone.   

Groups played interactive games and age-appropriate activities alongside peers, youth mentors and staff. We worked together to create a project around an important community topic that we identified as a group, while developing teamwork and communication skills. 


Visual Art to Stop Bullying

Surrey preteens started a community project to raise awareness of bullying and what we can do about it. Local young people were invited to contribute their artwork to an online gallery (by July 1 with a consent form). The art is inspired by Protecting Surrey Schools Together and follows the submission rules.

Online Gallery about Face Masks

A group of preteens created an online gallery of visual art to raise awareness of the proper use and disposal of face masks. Local young people were invited to submit electronic images that follow the Fraser Health guidelines and submission rules (by April 30 with a consent form). 

Thank You

The Peer Mentorship Program incorporates Equitas Community Action Projects and is funded by the BC Government.
