Do you have a passion for movies/film, movie/film production, using online tools to produce, edit or create content? Are you a film maker, involved in production/editing and/or creating some form of video content? If you are willing to impart your experience and knowledge and enjoy working with youth, this is the initiative for you! The student I'm hoping to match is passionate about movies and extremely interested in learning more about film/movie production. The student is quite creative and has some experience doing video editing in his personal time. He is amazing at remembering names of movies, and classifying movies based on year and release dates . The student is more visual and auditory in his learning and enjoys working on the computer, but sometimes feels overwhelmed with conversation—it’s not as easy for him to respond back with lengthy dialogue. I thought if I could find someone who could approach things in a more “hands on” or visual way—it could really work for the student. This could happen by screen sharing ideas or walking him through the steps of how to do certain things—watching the mentor create or edit for example or by watching online tutorials together.

Student Links is an initiative that offers High School students who have an intellectual disability an opportunity to expand on current interests and hobbies, while discovering new possibilities for life after High School.

The Friendship Circle of Ottawa is seeking teenagers/young adults to partake in our "Friends @ Home" program. Student volunteers are paired with a child and communicate weekly with the child they have been paired with. We hope that our volunteers can commit to at least six months of friendship in order for the relationship with their matched child to really grow. Volunteers do not need to have extensive training in the field of special needs, just an interest in children and an accepting attitude.

For the safety of our participants it is also asked that the volunteer who are over 18 have a police records check/vulnerable sector check (a note can be provided to have this done for a reduced cost).

Under normal circumstances, the volunteer visits their buddy at home, but due to current circumstances, we are limited to online or phone call visits. We hope to return to in-person meetings soon!
