The Power of Mentorship

Jenn and Chantel go back a long ways at Big Brothers Big Sisters Red Deer. "We were first matched almost seven years ago in the In-School Mentoring Program which means I went to Chantel's school for an hour a week during the school year," says Jenn. "We mostly baked and did crafts at that time, played games and did art projects."
