About Us

The Africa Mentoring Association (AMA) is a non-profit association of African mentoring professionals and mentees in the higher, second cycle, and basic education sectors, business, not-for-profit, for-profit, and government sectors. It’s AMA’s goal to offer the most current information in the constantly evolving field of mentoring best practices in an organized, accessible, and easy-to-use format. AMA’s credentialed Mentors bring unique experiences and a fresh perspective from their various fields of mentoring.

AMA sees mentoring as the most effective lever available for transforming the quality and effectiveness of human growth and national development. A series of mentoring workshops, professional virtual engagements (via several platforms), mentoring articles/publications/presentations etc, provide the ingredients and avenue for discussing mentoring best practices, trends, emerging new ideas, and strategies. In this way, AMA expects to truly contribute to developing the human capital of Africa
