Get Involved as a Mentor

Find an ACE program near you

We recommend you search for a program in your area to learn about registration dates and import program details. Each ACE affiliate operates on a different schedule, and offers a program tailored to the needs and landscape of the communities they serve.

Having a sense of how and when your local ACE affiliate operates will prove useful in determining how your skill set and availability might meet their volunteer needs. To find out more, we recommend reaching out to the contact listed on their webpage.

Register with your local ACE program

If you’ve determined that your local affiliate is currently accepting new volunteers, you are encouraged to complete the online registration.

All volunteers must register prior to each program year. Mentor/Volunteer registration includes a 5-minute training as the last step. Your registration won’t be accepted unless this training is completed. If you commit to mentoring for all program year sessions, you will be asked to complete a background check prior to the first team session.

This guide can help walk you through the registration process.

Next Steps

You should hear back from your ACE affiliate soon, but you can always reach out directly to the affiliate contact for updates.

You will soon be assigned to a team and provided with meeting and program details. Good luck in ACE! We hope you make the best of this unique opportunity!
