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 scholarship of an AYP teacher. Mentors and AYP Teachers engage in monthly Skype conversations and email exchanges. 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. If you are interested in becoming a Mentor for new scholars, please sign up here today!
"Being involved with the AYP mentoring program is about connection, life and love. Building a bridge between communities and strengthening each and every person in the community to develop life skills and attainable goals. My relationship with my mentee David started 3 years ago and he is now part of my family. We share ideas about yoga and life. We co-create themes for yoga classes and workshops. My family embraced the opportunity to host David this summer when he was on the HHH 2016 tour. The experience was priceless! If you are considering being a mentor, open your heart and mind and be up to something BIGGER than yourself! Kenya is much closer than you think!"
