10 Minute Mentor
#MentorsForChange

OVERVIEW ON INITIATIVE

We run an initiative called 10 Minute Mentor #MentorsForChange where we interview inspiring guests on Instagram live. 

Bootcamps for Change emphasizes the importance of mentorship and role models for young people to improve their economic and social mobility, in addition to improving their sense of community, which directly results in improved mental health. Lower family income, receiving public assistance, and neighborhood poverty are all negatively related to the likelihood of acquiring a natural mentor during adolescence and the transition to adulthood.

Goals

  1. Empower youth by interviewing successful individuals who potentially had a similar upbringing or faced similar challenges 
  2. Creating a dialogue about issues that affect many youths 
  3. Spread our message to a broader audience via multiple social media platforms 
  4. Involve diverse individuals from all fields within and related to fitness and our programming (coaches, Olympians, gym owners, social entrepreneurs, public health professionals, college athletes) 

Some themes we’re exploring include: 

  • Olympians
  • Youth Stories (Scholarship Recipients)
  • Mental Health
  • Public Health
  • Careers in Sport
  • Youth Social Entrepreneurship
  • Stories of Resilience
  • Accessibility in Sport
  • Careers in the Fitness Industry
  • Social Innovation in Canada
