The Alpha Leadership Project (ALP) acknowledges that young men need strong male role models in their lives. Mentors participate in regular discussions, support academic achievement, and encourage cultural exchanges. Additionally, alumni of the Alpha Leadership Project are encouraged to return to the program to share their life experiences with the students in the program.
The new and improved structure for mentoring assigns mentors to a specific high schools; giving each mentor an opportunity to make a tangible and long-term connection with the young men. Mentors are invited to attend each monthly workshop in their assigned high school. During the time in the school, mentors will have lunch with the group, and assist with the activities taking place in the workshop.
E-mentoring is available as another means to keep in contact with your mentee.
