About the Alliance:
The Mayor's Mentoring Alliance educates mentoring organizations about best practices and mentoring standards, ignites impactful and enduring mentor-mentee relationships and connects Charlotte's mentoring community.
We understand the importance of mentoring and how it can change the lives of local youth. Mentors not only provide their mentees with someone who cares about them, but they also help them:
- Improve academic skills
- Set career goals
- Improve self-esteem
- Stay in school
- Deal with day-to-day challenges
Mentoring is linked to improved academic, social, and economic prospects for youth. When you volunteer to become a mentor, you are not only positively impacting someone's life. You are ultimately helping to strengthen our local community and workforce.
