Research and outreach for the RE-AMP Community Mentorship Program is in full swing as we enter July. From my experience at the RE-AMP annual meeting, reading survey responses and hearing from people during listening sessions, it is apparent that the RE-AMP community and young leaders are excited about the opportunity to collaborate across generations to build a stronger Midwest climate movement.

The Will Steger Foundation is kicking off the summer with research to develop and launch an innovative mentorship program within the RE-AMP network that connects youth climate leaders with veteran staff from climate-focused non-profit organizations across the Midwest.

Mentorship is defined as a mutually beneficial learning relationship between two people that involves caring, commitment and trust. This project, which received grant funding through the RE-AMP Strategic Initiative Fund, aims to build egalitarian and intergenerational relationships that allow both participants to gain powerful new insights and perspectives.
