AMP! Returning Mentor Application for 2021/22 School Year
Thank you for completing this application for the AMP! Metro Richmond (AMP!) Mentoring Program for students at T.C. Boushall Middle School for the 2021-2022 school year. This application is for those who have mentored with us in the last 2 years. At this time, our best guess is that we will have a "hybrid" program, offering both virtual and in-person mentoring. We are waiting on guidance from the school about in-person volunteering and whether that is able to happen or not. We also know everyone has different comfort levels. Some may prefer in-person, while others are still not comfortable or can't come in person due to distance or work/school schedules. Once we have more information on policies, along with days and times we will let everyone know as soon as possible.

The time commitment for mentoring is always 1 hour for 1 day a week when school is in session. It always occurs around lunchtime. This will include about 10 weeks during the Fall of 2021 and 15 weeks during Spring of 2022.

Submitting your application expresses your interest in mentoring with our organization. AMP! program staff will be in touch regarding next steps. Please know that AMP! and Boushall Middle School will keep all information on this application in confidence and will use it solely for purposes of this program.

AMP! Metro Richmond appreciates your interest in becoming a mentor. Please type your initials for each of the following:
I agree to follow all mentoring program guidelines and understand that any violation will result in suspension and/or termination of the mentoring relationship. *
I understand that AMP! and Richmond Public Schools (RPS) are not obligated to provide a reason for their decision in accepting or rejecting me as a mentor. *
I agree to communicate regularly and openly with program staff, provide information regarding my mentoring activities, and receive feedback regarding any difficulties during my participation in the mentoring program. *
I agree to allow AMP! and RPS to use any photographic image of me taken while participating in the mentoring program. These images may be used in promotions, newsletters, and/or other related marketing materials.
Optional
I understand that this program takes place as a group and is monitored by the program coordinator. Any separate activities I choose to do with RPS are not part of the AMP! mentoring program. Any separate activities I choose to do with the student I am mentoring are not part of AMP!'s mentoring program and require permission from the student's parent or guardian. *
I understand AMP! requires a background screening every 3 years through First Advantage for all participating mentors. The background check will include criminal history and personal references. *
AMP! will begin that process after volunteers commit to mentoring by attending an AMP! Orientation and Training session. AMP! will incur costs related to background screening.
Prior to that background process, please answer yes or no to the following. *

Note: For criminal charges, specify all of the charge(s), date(s), disposition(s), name(s), and address(es) of the court(s) and judgement(s) or conviction(s). (CONVICTION means the final judgement on a verdict or a finding of guilty, or plea of nolo contendere, in any state or federal court of competent jurisdiction in a criminal case, regardless of whether an appeal is pending or could be taken. Conviction does not include a final judgment which has been expunged by pardon, reversed, set aside, or otherwise rendered invalid.)
