To ensure that quality mentors and mentor programs are available for Alexandria's youth and young adults in need by maximizing mentor recruitment, screening, and training AMP strives to provide every child and young adult in need in Alexandria with a quality mentoring relationship.
In the fall of 2006, city staff, mentor program representatives, and community volunteers came together to form the Alexandria Mentoring Partnership (AMP).
AMP is dedicated to strategically expanding quality youth mentoring in Alexandria, Virginia. Operated through the Alexandria juvenile courts, the AMP acts as an umbrella organization for mentoring programs throughout the city. The AMP acts as a clearinghouse for mentor and mentee referrals. Additionally, the AMP provides our partner programs with opportunities to collaborate and share best practices on mentor recruitment, training, and support through networking and advocacy.
Our mentoring programs vary in structure and mission, though the standard minimum requirements for mentors include an application, criminal background check, and the ability to commit for at least one hour, once a week, for one year.
