Formal Mentoring

Formal mentoring is structured, taking place within programs that place parameters around the mentoring relationship. TMP works with 150+ mentoring programs in the region and each one is different in term of requirements and time commitments, which can range from an hour a month to several hours per week. We can help you find a volunteer opportunity that best fits your needs and interests.

Additionally, TMP offers a full training curriculum around structured mentoring. Workshops for mentors cover topics like Mentoring 101 and Understanding Challenging Behaviors, while courses for mentees focus on making the most of a mentoring relationship and how to identify and engage mentors.

As community leaders and as servant leaders, we are heartbroken by the recent tragedies and know that a genuine and ongoing commitment to real change is necessary to confront and combat racism.  We stand in solidarity with our peers, our neighbors, our colleagues and our friends with an even stronger resolve to be present, to listen, to learn and to act.  If there’s one thing we’ve learned in our 25 years of serving the community, it’s this: 

We are stronger together

We are committed to actively fighting racism and to using our voices for better.  We will continue to bring strength and hope; to foster meaningful conversations around change; to deliver services that are inclusive and will support all.  We encourage you to join us and find ways to improve race relations in our community and beyond.  Let’s all work toward better – better connection, better allyship, better love for one another.  Let’s work together to make this world a better place for our kids.  Now is the time and they’re depending on us.
