Guide to High School is an after-school program that helps Grade 7 students in their transition to high school. We go through different topics each week for total of 8 weeks (April-May) including mindsets, stress management, friendships, personal identity, and social media. The program runs at local elementary or high school in Vancouver and Surrey 3-6pm (including set up and clean-up).

Each program is delivered by an intergenerational team of volunteers. The team will facilitate discussions and activities while sharing their experience on each topic. Volunteers also receive Inclusive Leadership and Facilitation Certificate at the end if they attend all training and 75% of the sessions.

No prior experience needed.

Volunteers are required to provide Criminal Record Check and complete all training before the start of the program. If you are volunteering first time with us since 2020, please schedule 30-minute interview with us once you submit your application - the interview is to check your availability and provide detailed introduction to the program.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to touch lives and build better futures for women and their families through advocacy and integrated services that foster economic independence, wellness and equal opportunities.


We are one of Metro Vancouver's largest and most diversified non-profit organizations. Our holistic, integrated programs and services help lift women and families out of poverty, provide the best start for children and create new opportunities for education, employment and leadership.

YWCA Metro Vancouver Youth Education Programs need young men and women to be mentors, leaders and facilitators for Grade 7 students during a critical transition in their lives.

Volunteers in our ten-week programs help Grade 7 girls and boys with their transition to high school by building their confidence, encouraging them to make good decisions and promoting healthy relationship skills. Each program is led by a team of two college/university students, one to two high school students and a mature mentor.
