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.

If you are interested in mentoring a child for at least one hour a week, submit a Mentor Interest Form, or contact the AMP Coordinator at 703.746.4455 or mentoring@alexandriava.gov



Why 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.


Our Programs

The Alexandria Mentoring Partnership currently represents over 10 mentoring programs in three areas: youth mentoring, affiliate youth programs, and affiliate adult mentoring programs. 


Our Supporters

In addition to its eleven mentoring programs, the Alexandria Mentoring Partnership collaborates with local businesses, community organizations and the Alexandria Court Service Unit.


Join AMP

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.


Our Mission, Vision & Background

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.
