The Teen In-School Mentoring (TISM) program matches a teenaged youth (age 15 – 17) with an elementary school student at the nearest primary school to their high school location.  The TISM program provides a positive mentor to a younger student, with the teen mentor gaining leadership skills, volunteer hours, and looks great on a resume or a post-secondary application.
