Dan & Tyler

Match Spotlight

Matched March 2016 in Okotoks, AB

“When I became I mentor I hoped that I could make a small difference in someone’s life, I underestimated what we could achieve together in such a short period of time. In the past few years we have grown closer together, learned to trust each other and shared many laughs. Not only do I consider Tyler a part of my family but I am certain that we will remain friends for life, leaning on each other for support, conquering new experiences, and making each other’s lives better. I am so thankful for the time that we have spent together and would recommend to everyone to find the time in their life to make a difference in someone else’s.”

“Having a mentor has changed my life for the better. I have never had a male role model in my life and over the past two years this has made me realize how a big brother can make a difference. Dan has taught me things, shown me better paths to take in life and I appreciate him greatly. I am a lucky teen to have this opportunity. I truly feel grateful.”

Mentor Spotlight

Match September 2016 in Calgary, AB

“I signed up to be a mentor because I wanted to get involved with supporting youth in the community and I’ve seen the positive impacts it can have. Tiffany and I have had many adventures and the best part is being able to talk openly about anything and everything. I’m excited to have seen her grow and adapt through some major transitions in life and have loved seeing all her wins.”
