2021-22 School Year
AFROCENTRIC MENTORSHIP & ENRICHMENT PROGRAM (SCHOOL YEAR)
We at Find Your Path are so excited to announce that we will be launching our first school year Afrocentric Mentorship & Enrichment Program this fall! From October 2021 to May 2022, we will help put students on a path of academic success by working to increase their academic engagement and personal resilience. Within this program, each participant will be paired with a Black student in university or college who will serve as their mentor. The program will include live sessions once a month where we will gather to learn about a different academic subject (eg. chemical engineering or anthropology), reflect on a new Afrocentric principle (e.g. Kujichagulia/self-determination or Kujieleza/self-expression) and hear from an exciting guest speaker working in academia or industry. This program is intended for youth in grades 6-10 but those a bit younger or older are welcome to sign up!
We are also looking for mentors who will act as an advocate, teacher, and guide for students, while also providing social support. This is a great opportunity for post-secondary students to build their leadership and communication skills while using their talents and experiences to motivate and encourage young students on their journey.

We are so excited to announce that we will be introducing our first ever free virtual tutoring program for the 2021-22 school year. The program will run from October 4th, 2021 until June 23rd, 2022. Online sessions will run every Monday to Thursday from 4-7pm over Zoom. This program is designed for students in Grade 6 – 10 who are struggling with English, Math or Science. Each student will be paired up with a tutor who has a significant amount of experience with their subject and will have weekly, one-hour, 1-on-1 tutoring sessions with them for the school year. Priority for entrance to this program will be given to low-income students and Black-identifying students.
We are also looking for tutors who have demonstrated high levels of competency in English, Math or Science at the Grade 6 -10 level and are willing to provide academic support to our students.This is a great opportunity to help young students with their school work as well as an excellent professional opportunity for students currently enrolled in a Master’s of Teaching Program or other concurrent education programs. Please note, you do not have to self identify as Black to tutor in this program.
