Who We Are

Now Recruiting for the 2015/16 School Year

We asked students "How have you changed since you had a mentor?" and they said:

• "I am going to class more."
• "I get into less trouble than before."
• "I pay more attention in class."
• "I opened up and was able to share more than I thought."
• "It made me believe in myself rather than put myself down."
• "It made me want a good and family like my mentor has."​

AMP! originated in 2006 and operates in Henderson Middle School in Richmond's Northside neighborhood. We recruit, train, and support adult mentors in one-to-one mentoring with middle school students and provide career exploration visits to workplaces in the Richmond Region. AMP! mentors meet with students on Tuesdays at lunch (12:15-1pm) during Fall and Spring semesters.

Our Mission

Our mission and vision are simple. AMP!'s mission is to connect students and mentors through school-based mentoring to amplify perspectives on what can be. Our goal is to create self-confidence, stimulate learning, and encourage career discovery for middle school youths in the Richmond Region. Our vision is a Richmond Region where all youth believe they can achieve.
