Thank you for your interest in our Vegan Mentor Program, which will provide valuable guidance to you as you make the transition towards a vegan or vegetarian diet or move towards consuming fewer animal products.
Our volunteer mentors want to share their experiences with others. They are ready to help you with anything from shopping for groceries and deciding what to bring to your work potluck, to finding a way to talk to your child’s teacher about dietary requirements, and much more. Mentoring can consist of conversations over email or social media, phone calls, and ideally some in-person meetings. We will do our best to match you with a mentor who has the particular expertise (such as health/nutrition, cooking, reducing expenses, convenience, eating out, and peer issues) that you are seeking and has similar motivations and interests. Once a match has been made, we will provide mentees and mentors with an email introduction and each other’s contact information. We encourage matches to contact each other as soon as possible. To be sure you receive this email introduction, please add firstname.lastname@example.org your email contacts. At times, mentors and mentees may have incompatible personalities or different goals for the experience. This is perfectly acceptable and does not reflect negatively on either person. If at any point, you feel that it is not a good match, please contact us to ask for a change.
Having a mentor to provide support and encouragement can make the transition to a vegan diet much easier and more fun. We wish you success and joy on your vegan journey!
