Why volunteer as a Youth Mentor?

By volunteering a few hours of your time every month, you can help a young person succeed in life. As a mentor, you can have a positive impact on someone in a variety of personal, academic, and professional situations.



  • Show a young person that there is someone who cares about them and that they are not alone to deal with day-to-day challenges
  • Help them improve their personal strengths and interpersonal skills and make them feel like they matter

About Ometz

About Ometz

For over 160 years, Ometz has been serving the needs of the Jewish community of Montreal. Beginning as three separate agencies, Jewish Employment Montreal (JEM), Jewish Family Services (JFS) and Jewish Immigration Aid Services (JIAS) joined together in 2008 to form the organization that we now know as Ometz. Ometz is the Hebrew word for courage and is a reflection of the courage of those who seek our support in transforming their lives.

Today, reaching more than 12,000 people annually, we provide intervention, prevention, support services and programs to enhance our clients’ quality of life. Our mission is to deliver accessible, confidential, personalized and culturally sensitive services based on Jewish values. Our staff members are responsive, compassionate, engaged, inspiring—and sensitive to the cultural and language needs of our diverse community.
