Discover the power of mentorship with Dare to Dream, our dynamic group youth mentorship program. In our program, both mentors and mentees enter the mentoring relationship voluntarily, fostering a genuine connection built on trust and support.

 

Over the course of one full year, you will spend quality time with your mentee in a group setting, engaging in new activities, developing skills, and nurturing the mentoring bond. BGC Cochrane & Area will be there every step of the way, providing ongoing support and guidance.
