The Alberta Mentorship Program
(AMP) is seeking to expand its offering of mentorship programs beyond Edmonton and Calgary to newcomers in rural and small urban communities in Alberta. The AMP actively supports mentorship programs for immigrants to facilitate their integration into Alberta’s workforce and economy.
In 2019, the Government of Alberta supported the Alberta Mentorship project to create a repository of freely available resources designed for organizations that wanted to launch their own mentorship program. Resources were developed with the support of pilot partners, such as Lethbridge Family Services and the YMCA Northern Alberta in the Wood Buffalo region.
The AMP is seeking to work with local organizations to develop local mentorship programs for newcomers, as well as to support community organizations in establishing mentorship programs that meet the needs of their community.
