The purpose of the ALD Connect Peer Mentor Program is to connect with individuals with ALD/AMN, family members, or caregivers with an ALD Connect mentor so they can form a relationship that is maintained with encouragement, respect, and confidentiality. The main goal of this program is to provide easier access and increased collaboration between members of the ALD Connect community. We have 21 mentors who hope to connect with another person who shares their circumstances and understands their specific challenges.
