Mentoring InitiativePassport is also providing in-school mentoring opportunities to give students ages 14 – 21 who have a developmental disability some exposure to experiences and options available to them after they leave school. Students will be paired with experienced, adult mentors who also have a developmental disability. These mentors will work with them to decide what steps they need to follow in order to develop the skills required to achieve their goals. Through the skills they learn as part of the mentoring initiative, students can be better prepared for the transition from school to life in the community.The mentoring initiative is being introduced in five communities – Peterborough, Huntsville, Alexandria, Tillsonburg and Sault Ste. Marie.
