What is the Mentoring Program?

The Purpose of the Mentoring Program:

  • Provide a positive adult role model for youth

  • Establish communication, trust, and respect

  • Raise the youth's self esteem and outlook on life

The Partners Organization Provides:

  • Staff support and monthly contact

  • Free or low cost activities and life skills workshops twice a month

  • Senior Partner training

Mentors are asked to spend 3 hours a week with their Jr. Partner which could mean a lifetime of difference to a child in need of guidance. The first step in becoming a Partners' Mentor is effortless. Simply attend a Partners’ sponsored orientation (noncommittal). During this session, it can be determined if the program will work for you!

Partners offers orientation the second Tuesday of every month at noon or 5:30 pm at 1169 Colorado Ave. We will also come to your office or meet at a coffee shop

during a time that is convenient

for you. Call us at 970-245-5555

or email to schedule a time.

What is involved in becoming a Mentor (Senior Partner)?
Who are the kids (Jr. Partners)?
  • Our Jr. Partners are referred to us by various outside agencies. They are children who need a positive and stable adult role model in their lives.

  • There are 90 kids currently on the wait-list... we are always in need of more Sr. Partners!

Did You Know?
  • ​1 in 3 young people are growing up without a mentor outside their family. This is the mentoring gap in America. 

  • That’s 9 million young people without a mentor outside their family to walk alongside them through their journey. 

  • At a time when much of the focus is on what divides us, MENTOR research shows that there is something the majority of Americans agree on: mentoring relationships are powerful tools for connection and are critical to our country’s future.

  • Americans are overwhelmingly crossing racial, economic, and other bridges to mentor young people outside their families.

  • More than 80% of adults agree with government investment in mentoring, and more than two-thirds are already mentoring or willing to consider it.
