The Couples Mentoring program matches a married or common-law couple aged 21 and over who would like to share the joys and rewards of befriending a child together. Through regular outings, a relationship is developed between the mentors and mentees that is built on trust and common interests and is supported by an experienced Caseworker. Couples generally spend about 80% of their time together with the Little Brother allowing some one to one time with child.
