We’d like to introduce May’s match of the month Dan and Andrew. Can you believe that they have been matched for nine years! Wow! We sat down with these two to get to know them better and of course show why they’re this month’s match of the month! We asked Dan what made him want to be a mentor and he shared, “I thought it would be a fun and good experience.”

These two are an awesome match who love spending time together. They love to sit around and talk about sports. As well, there favourite memory includes going to see the Raptors play in Toronto and spending the whole day together. Sounds fun! We asked these two what they have learned from one another and they said, “Learning how to listen and changing the way we communicate to each other and others.”

These two really click and you could tell by the conversation that the relationship has just become natural to them. This was echoed when we asked Dan, how has being a mentor impacted his life? His answer, “Positively! It doesn’t feel like I am a volunteer, it’s just a thing I do!”

We also asked Andrew if he would consider becoming a volunteer in the future, “Yeah I would consider it, I feel like this program has given a lot to me and I feel like it would be good to give some back eventually.”

We really appreciate Dan and Andrew taking the time to share and we wish them all the best in future! But before we go our staff wanted to comment on this match, “Daniel and Andrew are just an awesome match. They both have busy schedules but make a real effort to stay connected. Daniel is giving of himself of time. He does things for Andrew and his family, like helping them move, without asking. He’s a great guy that is committed to being a positive role model.  Andrew has a lot of respect for Daniel, and appreciates him. Their family is awesome to do updates with. They’re a lot of fun to work with.”

Stay tuned for next month’s match of the month!
