Matt I hope that happens and happy for you and your family.   It would be a great thing to have a mentor.

For anybody looking to become a mentor in their area, I would recommend looking at your local behavioral health centers / agencies. They usually operate on the county level and should be relatively easy to find via a google search.

Hey gents - fairly new to AOM, myself. Checking in here as a mentor; 38, married with 2 daughters and have a two good ears and a few experiences under my belt. Looking forward to helping others and not too proud to reach out for help from time to time. Best to you guys.

I would very much like to offer myself as a mentor.  I have checked the links provided and don't see anything for the state of Oklahoma.  Any suggestions on how I might get involved with this worthy program?
Comment by Colton Wilson on September 21, 2009 at 9:08pm
Man, I have been neglecting the AOM community way too much lately. So I'll throw something out there. I started a blog for my ministry: I am also putting together a weekly class for young men (see my AOM blog).
