The AMP COVID-19 Response Town Halls

Mentoring agencies across Alberta have been faced with an unprecedented challenge in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Alberta Mentoring Partnership has reached out to a selection of our partners to discuss what their agencies have been doing differently, what their plans are moving forward, and how organizations across Alberta can connect to ensure their programs can continue to run safely and effectively.

The four upcoming town halls meetings will discuss a variety of high-level topics. If you or your agency has a recommendation or would like to take part in one of these panels, please e-mail or provide your contact information in the form below.

The purpose of these town hall meetings is to allow agencies to ask questions and learn what other groups are doing to stay connected and continue to support matches during this time.
