“I have personally recommended AMP to 5 of my classmates based on my positive experiences so far.”
Member, Class of '07

“I'm now 50 years old and thought that I'm too old for mentoring, I wish I'd gotten help sooner. I have a lot of baggage about *still* needing help in the areas where I need it. I wondered what a USNA grad would think of me as we got to know each other and I shared the story behind the story, if you know what I mean. It seems so "counter-USNA" and I had to overcome it to even register. I'm glad that I did. The matching process came up with a phenomenal match for me.”
Member, Class of '83

“I was able to get information that I was having trouble finding on my own. My mentor was able to make connections that I didn't realize were able to be made.”
Member, Class of '10

“I think this program has been tremendously helpful for me and also for my mentor.”
