AMP! Metro Richmond is a vibrant mentoring program in the Richmond Region where adults and youth meet weekly to share interests, learn from each other, and "amplify" their perspectives on what can be as they develop their friendship.
Originating in 2006, AMP! is normally a school-based mentoring program. However, in an effort to keep Boushall students connected and supported in these unprecedented times, and to keep everyone safe and healthy, we will be conducting mentoring virtually via Zoom for the entire 20/21 school year. We are looking for guest speakers to join us for a "one-off" volunteer experience. We are hoping to find guests who will speak, educate and engage our students and their mentors in conversation about topics that are relevant to 11-14 year olds.
Topics could include, but not limited to:
Social Media Safety
Virtual tours of interesting places
Investigating various careers
Jobs for teenagers
This is a great opportunity for those who cannot commit to weekly mentoring! Our matches meet via Zoom at two different times. Tuesdays from 5-6pm and Wednesdays from 12:30-1:30pm. It would be ideal if speakers could present to both groups. However, if only available for one of those slots, that is acceptable.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.

Our mission and vision are simple. AMP!'s mission is to connect students and mentors through school-based mentoring to amplify perspectives on what can be. Our goal is to create self-confidence, stimulate learning, and encourage career discovery for middle school youths in the Richmond Region. Our vision is a Richmond Region where all youth believe they can achieve.
AMP! originated in 2006 and operates in Boushall Middle School in Richmond's Southside neighborhood. We recruit, train, and support adult mentors in one-to-one mentoring with middle school students and provide career exploration visits to workplaces in the Richmond Region. AMP! mentors meet with students virtually this year on Wednesdays from 12:30-1:30pm or on Tuesdays from 5-6pm during Fall and Spring semesters.

This is a 1-2 hr time commitment. It would be ideal if speakers could present to both of our mentoring groups which occur on Tuesday from 5-6pm and Wednesday from 12:30-1:30pm. However, if only available for one of those slots, that is acceptable.
