• Go Girls! Game On! (GGGO) Programs Contact Temporary Policy Change
  • Standard GGGO program policies dictate that there be no contact of any form between Mentors and Students outside of the weekly school visits and approved agency events.
  • Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be offering Go Girls! and Game On! over a School Board approved virtual platform. You will facilitate weekly programming through video chat conversations once a week during an assigned day and time. All group sessions will be monitored by a Big Brothers Big Sisters Program Coordinator.
  • By signing below, you are indicating your consent to engage in virtual mentoring through a School Board approved virtual platform with your GGGO mentees until which time schools reopen or until the end of the school year, June 27th or June 29th, 2022 (depending on School Board).
  • I understand that:
    • My mentee’s parent/guardian must first provide the agency with written consent for their child to engage and participate in a virtual Go Girls/Game On Group
    • The group will adhere to the following rules which will be reinforced in the first few minutes of the meeting
    • - No sharing of personal contact information will be a highlighted rule
      - No screen sharing between participants
      - No private chats between participants
    • A Mentoring Coordinator will send the sign-in details for the weekly video chats through email the day before. Sign in information should not be shared. It helps protect the confidentiality of the group and the girls. Using a password to enter this meeting will minimize the risk that the meeting could be interfered with by an external party
    • Contact with group participants must only occur during the specified group time
    • This is a temporary exemption to the standard contact policies (see above)
  • I agree to:
    • Return to the normal contact policies (see above) once schools re-open and I have been advised to resume in-person visits
    • Contact my Program Coordinator if I need support in adjusting to this new form of mentoring
    • Do my best to attend weekly group sessions with match participants
    • Participate in all regularly required match monitoring check-in’s as well as any additional match monitoring check-in’s requested by the agency
