Reaching for Goals – SEAP

Lisa Settlement Workers in Schools News

In 2016, CultureLink launched the Student Education Attainment Program (SEAP) – a mentorship program designed to help students of Somali descent with credit accumulation and educational attainment. Over the past 5 months, we have been busy recruiting and training mentors, organising community information sessions, meeting with the community partners and registering students.

This past December, we were ready to start matching students with their mentors.  20 Students, their parents and 15 mentors were invited to one of three Mentor-Mentee Match Nights.  With delicious food and icebreaker activities planned, mentors, mentees and their parents had an opportunity to meet and get to know each other, learn more about the program and what to expect in the coming months.  You could see the excitement in their eyes as students and mentors sat together and began talking about their goals and expectations for the program.   If you are interested in learning more about SEAP and how to register, please contact Alasis Mohamed at or at 647-641-8162. If you are interested in becoming a SEAP mentor, please visit for application details.
