Mentorship is the building of relationships. Family mentorship is the core of what we do at Gateway. Our organization was founded by families who came together to create change in our community. We continue to draw on the knowledge, support, and experience of families in our day-to-day work, while providing regular opportunities for families to come together.

Mentorship options

One on One

We mentor families by email and through phone conversations for planning, sharing resources, and facilitating family-to-family connections on an ongoing basis.

Online Community

We host the Gateway Family Mentorship group on Facebook to provide opportunities for families to connect online.

Families Forward Networking

Families Forward is a monthly meeting where families connect with other families, learn from one another, and explore issues that are important to them. Each month tackles a new topic, with expert speakers on hand to share information with families. Meetings are held the third Thursday of every month, from 7 to 9 p.m., at Gateway’s Learning Centre (106, 18304 105 Ave., Edmonton). Please feel free to drop in!
