Thank you for your interest in serving as a volunteer Plant Powered Lifestyle Mentor with Plant Powered Metro New York! Please answer the following questions so we can match you with people seeking mentorship who may be a good fit to work with you.
Please note that, while we do not expect our mentors to follow a whole food, plant-based (WFPB) diet to the letter at all times, we believe it is critical for our mentors to have personal experience with this lifestyle in order to be knowledgeable enough to help someone else transition. Please determine for yourself if you feel that you can fully represent this way of eating for others, and note that we require a minimum of one year of experience before you are eligible to become a mentor. If you have less than one year under your belt but want to join in, inquire with Sherry Jarrett, firstname.lastname@example.org, to request a waiver.
Also, this is not a health coaching program. Our intention is to focus on very personal aspects of lifestyle that allow people to make dietary changes. The end of this form includes a waiver to this effect that must be completed before getting started with a mentee.
All mentors are required to complete PPMNY's mentor training program, held a few times per year.
