About Kids.Now:

Kids.Now offers an in-school, after school hours mentorship program to develop life skills for Grade 7 and 8 youth living primarily in underserved neighbourhoods across Canada.  Kids.Now programs aim to empower youth to reach their full potential.

Kids.Now matches a volunteer mentor with 10 students for a 12-week curriculum-based program that focuses on five main themes: building self-confidence, resolving conflict, setting goals, improving communication, and managing stress.  Kids.Now believes that providing preventative mentoring to its target clients, by qualified adult coaches in a small group setting, is critical in the reduction of unproductive life choices.  Kids.Now programs build life-success skills that: improve family and peer relationships, provide youth with tools to make positive choices and turn away from risky behaviour, enhance self-esteem, and encourage healthy thinking, leading to a more productive and rewarding life.

Kids.Now has 2 full-time staff members, plus 6 part-time contract support workers to help run the Kids.Now leadership programs.
