Eat. Live. Go Vegan — We’ll Help.


From learning what to cook and where to eat to what to wear and how to talk with uninformed friends and family, going and staying vegan can be overwhelming. However, with someone by your side, vegan living can be fun, easy and life changing.

That’s why we created the New Leaf Vegan Mentor Program.

Our free program will connect you with a trained mentor for one-on-one individualized support, no matter where you live, to help you reach and maintain your goal. They’ll answer your questions, share information and resources, discuss challenges and celebrate your successes.

New Leaf mentors don’t all share the same background, but they have this in common: they’re vegans who are respectful, kind, responsible and resourceful — and they’re dedicated to educating and empowering you.

Have you met your match?


If you’re looking for a specially trained, supportive guide on your path toward vegan living, we can match you with a mentor who will customize their approach to your needs and goals.

If you’re enthusiastic about vegan living and helping others commit to a vegan lifestyle, we can help you prepare for this exciting volunteer role and match you with a mentee who will benefit from your experience and understanding.
