- Americorps Vista
In the past 4 years, the Alexandria Mentoring Partnership has benefited from the services of four excellent Americorps VISTA volunteers: Ashley Snyder, 2013-2014; Haley Bader, 2014-2015; Lily Rowny, 2015-2016, and current AMP Coordinator for 2016-2017, Chelsea Tegels. The VISTAs provide mentor referral services, help organize recruitment events and build new community partnerships.
Become a Mentor
Mentoring is proven to decrease the risk factors associated with crime, substance abuse, teen pregnancy, poor school performance and gang affiliation.
The Alexandria Mentoring Partnership is currently seeking dedicated, caring and enthusiastic adults to serve the youth of Alexandria. Our City's children need you!
No prior experience is required, and we provide extensive training on how to be an effective mentor.
Mentoring benefits both mentor and mentee in a variety of ways! Mentoring participants report greater social connectedness, self-esteem, improved communication skills and much more. The Alexandria Mentoring Partnership works to ensure that these benefits are available to all youth and mentors who participate in mentoring programs.
In addition to its eleven mentoring programs, the Alexandria Mentoring Partnership collaborates with local businesses, community organizations and the Alexandria Court Service Unit.
Our collaboration works to support member organizations in maximizing mentor recruitment, screening, and training in order to ensure quality mentoring for all of Alexandria's youth. We are always seeking opportunities to engage both established programs and newer, start-up organizations.
The work of the AMP ultimately supports close to 300 mentoring relationships each year by working with eleven different programs. Many entities are involved with the AMP, including local government, religious, and nonprofit organizations, as well as the Alexandria City Public Schools, foundations, businesses, local elected leadership, and individual community members.
