To date, Africa Yoga Project has trained over 200 youth from Africa through an AYP Teacher Training and Baron Baptiste’s Level 1 and Level 2 teacher trainings. Today, Africa Yoga Project employs these instructors to teach over 300 free classes a week. The AYP Mentor Program was developed to create a bridge between our aspiring Kenyan teachers and individuals all over the world. In 2011, our first year of the Mentor Program, Mentors from the US, Canada, Australia and Europe were paired with an Africa Yoga Project Teacher and the program has been growing ever since!
The Mentor Program allows Mentors to be a catalyst for change in their home communities, while also contributing to a growing impact on the lives and careers of Africa Yoga Project Teachers.
The Mentor Program is a 12-month commitment. The monthly contribution of $125 pays for the salary of an AYP teacher. Mentors and AYP Teachers engage in monthly Skype conversations and email ex- changes. In order to facilitate learning and sharing, a new theme is presented each month, based on the year of the mentee.
We are currently looking for mentors for our new mentees of 2017. If you are interested in becoming a Mentor for the 2017 Program, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, or sign up here today!!
