How to become a Mentor
The men and women who volunteer their time to be with our youth or support our programs in other ways are the backbone of Alliance of Generations. We are interested in finding new mentors for our programs. If you want to know how to become involved, we would love to discuss our program with you. The best way to get to know mentors in Alliance of Generation and how we approach mentoring is to join us at one of our Monthly Mentoring Circles. We also offer the Inter Mentor Weekend for men who intensive weekend where participants explore their childhood in preparation for working with young people. This training is not being offered in 2019.
We require interested men and women to apply for being mentors and to have a background check. We encourage all mentors to continue to attend Workshops and receive Training pertaining to youth mentoring.
Being a mentor not only supports our youth but can be a rich, learning experience.
