The NMCAN community walks alongside young people, encouraging you to build the life you want.

Mentoring Project

Mentors understand that moving into adulthood can be confusing and difficult. We will match you with a volunteer mentor to share new experiences with you, offer guidance when you want it, and encourage YOUR goals and dreams.

  • How it works: we get to know you—who you are, what you like/dislike, and what you are interested in. Then, we match you with an adult volunteer (who is not paid) that shares some of these same qualities and can help you explore your interests.
  • You can participate if you:
    • Are between the ages of 14 and 25
    • Live in the greater Albuquerque area (including Rio Rancho, Los Lunas, and Belen)

Intentional Community Building

We offer community building events where we share a meal and explore different activities such as hiking, camping, art making, and more. This is a great way to get to know people in the NMCAN community.
