Youth Mentoring

Amplifying Youth Connections Through Mentoring

Volunteers of America, Utah's AMP Program supports positive youth outcomes by connecting young people with a trained volunteer mentor 

Research shows the most consistent thing that moves youth out of risk-filled backgrounds to successful adulthood is a reliable caring adult in their life. When youth know that someone cares about them and they are recognized for their contributions, they are more likely to develop their skills, make healthy choices, and achieve self-sufficiency.

The Volunteers of America, Utah AMP Program amplifies youth connections through mentoring. In addition to providing skill-building opportunities, AMP supports positive youth outcomes by connecting young people with a trained volunteer mentor.
