Who Are Future Leader Mentors?
Mentors involved with the Future Leaders program are volunteers who share OLI’s passion for developing leaders within Indigenous youth. Mentors typically have been involved with the OLI program in some capacity previously, but that is not a requirement. This can include past OLI volunteers and teachers, sponsors, board members and staff, as well as guests to OLI’s annual performance.
All of our mentors participate in a screening process before becoming Mentors. OLI completes reference checks and each mentor is required to provide OLI with a current clear police check. Mentors are also involved in a small interview process to gather information to best pair them up with a mentee.
