Mentoring through AVM involves connecting a more experienced volunteer management professional with a less experienced member, for professional and/or personal development.

The purpose of the relationship is to support the mentee in making positive change and reaching their goals. Mentoring will involve the more experienced member sharing knowledge and experience.
