Eat Smart, Play Smart, Live Smart

"The journey to adulthood is never an easy one, but it can be smoothed out with the guidance and support of a mentor who cares and understands. More importantly, mentoring can help cement an active, healthy lifestyle that nourishes self-esteem and confidence.”

Game on! is a small-group mentoring program for boys in grade 4 to grade 7, that encourages physical activity, healthy eating, communication skills, and the development of a positive self-image. Adult men are matched to a small group of 8 to 12 boys to complete a structured program that offers 8 mentoring sessions over a period of 7-10 weeks. Sessions run 1 - 2 hours at a school location either during lunch hour or after school.

The Game On! program is based on the view that boys have few opportunities to explore their full human potential because of numerous societal pressures to “act like a man”. The Game On! program aims to challenge these ideas of being a young man in our society and offers a place (and space) where each boy will be positively supported in challenging and overcoming the pressures they face. Sport plays an active role in sustaining the culture of masculinity and the Game On! program offers other choices to be physically active; ones that are more cooperative, supportive and geared to lifelong lifestyle changes. The goal of these activities and discussions is to encourage participants to be competent, compassionate and ambitious as well as to hear the voices of other people.
