How Can I Join?
If you are new to AMP, welcome! We are excited that you want to join our team. Here are the steps you need to take to become a mentor:
- Fill out the New Mentor Screening. Once we receive your screening, we will review it and notify you if you have been accepted into the program. If you have not received a response one week after returning your screening, please email us email@example.com.
- Attend the Information Meeting, which will be held the first Wednesday of each semester from 4:15-5:00 p.m. We will send an email with the meeting location to everyone who completes the New Mentor Screening.
- Attend the New Mentor Orientation which will immediately follow the Information Meeting, around 5:00 p.m. on the first Wednesday of each semester. This meeting will be a longer meeting, running for about 2 hours. This Orientation is extremely important as it will give you the foundation needed to be a successful mentor.
- Sign and return the Consent Form. We will have forms available to sign and return at our first meeting, or you can print and bring your own.
Once you have completed these steps and been accepted into the program, you are officially an AMP mentor! We look forward to working with you and hope to get you paired with a co-mentor and mentee asap.
