Youth Making Positive Choices
The Kids Now program equips youth with essential life-success skills that enable them to make positive choices, increase their self-awareness, confidence and communication skills. With the right skills and dedicated mentors youth have the power to reach their full potential.
Who’s Your Mentor?
Who’s Your Mentor?™ is an online video series developed by Kids Now, to promote youth mentoring. We asked well-known Canadian businesspeople, community leaders, Olympians, and media personalities to talk about a mentor in their business or personal lives who inspired them or helped get them where they are today.
Our goal is to mentor over 2000 kids across Canada in the next 12 months. With your help, together, we can make a difference. Your gift will enable us to mentor more kids and give them life success skills to make positive choices.
