Inner City Mentorship Program

INNER CITY MENTORSHIP TEAM

The Inner City Mentorship Team is a group of grade 9-12 students committed to building relationships with students and families in the heart of Regina.  Currently, the team operates as an extra-curricular activity and runs on course completion days under the direction of Krista Munson and Tim Thiessen, with the help of  RCS teachers and staff Jennifer Armstrong, Jordan Lynnes, Tammy Flaman and Yvonne Novak.

One of our focal areas is our partnership with Kitchener School. Our desire is to provide mentorship, hope and friendship. Throughout the year our team will spend time with Kitchener students engaging in a variety of activities: Gym Mania afternoons (an afternoon of fun and games), baking, arts and craft activities, community visits, as well as a spring carnival. Once a year, our team also partners up with the students of Scott Collegiate School and together we put on a similar, but larger mentorship event.  This event again includes Kitchener School, as well as two other Regina inner city schools – Seven Stones and Albert Park.

Outside of this partnership, we provide our Inner City Mentorship Team with opportunities to serve with parachurch organizations. Some of our students volunteer their time with The Party, The Burger Bus, Souls Harbour, YFC and other inner city ministry agencies. All students in grades 9 – 12 are welcome to join the Inner City Mentorship Team. Through the Team our students not only help others, but also grow themselves. We are committed to making a difference through service one heart at a time. For more information contact Krista Munson at krista.munson@rbe.sk.ca or Tim Thiessen at tim.thiessen@myrcs.org
