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.

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. Please visit
