  • In the past 3 years, the Alexandria Mentoring Partnership has benefited from the services of three excellent Americorps VISTA volunteers: Ashley Snyder, 2013-2014; Haley Bader, 2014-2015; and Lily Rowny, current Americorps VISTA for 2015-2016.

    Calling all mentors! 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, please contact the AMP Coordinator at 703-746-4455 or by email at  mentoring@alexandriava.gov for more information.

    Mentoring is proven to decrease the risk factors associated with crime, substance abuse, teen pregnancy, poor school performance and gang affiliation.
