Mayor's Mentoring Alliance

About the Mayor's Mentoring Alliance:

Educate. Ignite. Connect. The Mayor's Mentoring Alliance (MMA) educates mentoring organizations about best practices and mentoring standards through trainings and workshops, 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 youth. Mentors not only provide their mentee with someone who cares about them, but they also help them:

  • Improve academic and social skills
  • Set career goals
  • Improve self-esteem
  • Stay in school
  • Deal with day-to-day challenges

Mentoring is linked to enhanced academic, social, and economic prospects for youth. When you decide to become a mentor, you are not only making a commitment to positively impact someone's life. You are also ultimately helping to strengthen our local community and workforce.


Mayor’s Mentoring Alliance (MMA) Mentor Mingle

Movement in Mentoring | Thursday, February 11 from 6-7p 

Registration here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/movement-in-mentoring-mentor-mingle-tickets-138874428153 

Mentoring programs have been hit hard by COVID-19, yet we never stopped moving forward to meet the needs of the young people we serve. Please join us for a Mentoring Mingle Series titled “Movement in Mentoring”. This first session will focus on ways to calm all the noise, reduce stress, and challenge positive energy through Mindfulness. Cassandra Drakeford from BeMindful, Inc. will be on hand to lead us through and exercise and provide you with tools you can use with mentees.


Mission Statement:

The Mayor's Mentoring Alliance (MMA) connects Charlotte mentoring organizations to promote mentoring and its best practices through trainings and workshops, recognition, and establishing quality standards for service delivery.

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. Please visit mecked.org/the-locator to find the right program for you.
