Become a Fitness Mentor

Newton Mentoring Alliance Logo

The Newton Mentoring Alliance is looking for fitness mentors to empower youth to try new fitness activities and develop healthy habits. Each month the Newton Mentoring Alliance hosts activities for mentors and mentees focused on fitness such as hiking, rock climbing, kayaking, yoga, and much more.

Mentors are paired in a 1-on-1 relationship with a young person in grades 6-12, as part of a year long program. Mentors commit to meeting with their mentee in the community to participate in fitness activities twice a month for a total of six hours per month.

Training and ongoing support is provided. Monthly group activities and free/discounted events are offered for mentors and mentees.
