Saturday Program Mississauga (SPM) is a tutoring and mentorship program that serves local high school students who have the potential to achieve more academically. The majority of mentees are grade 9 and 10 students who need help with math, science, or English. Mentors are UTM students from various programs of study, including medicine, the concurrent teacher education program, and other undergraduate and graduate programs. Over the past two years, SPM has been successful in boosting the marks of our mentees, some by as much as 30%.
The sessions run from 9:45AM to 12:30PM, at which time (free) lunch will be served. A workshop will also run during some sessions to supplement the students’ learning.
