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


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. 

The Mayor's Mentoring Alliance (MMA) will host our upcoming training, Mentor 101: Building a Foundation for Your Role as a Mentor, on Tuesday, September 18, 2018 at the Carole Hoefener Center, 615 East 6th Street, from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. Join MMA to learn the fundamental skills on how to be an effective mentor! Attendance will be limited to the first 125 people who register, so please RSVP quickly if you are certain that you will be able to attend. Register below:

The Locator:

We have partnered with MeckEd and the Mecklenburg County Youth Coalition (MCYC) to have one community locator that serves as a resource to connect mentors and mentees to agencies as well as to assist in search of out of school time programming for youth.
