We’ll Reach As High As We Can.
And Then Reach Higher.
Partners Mentoring Youth is a community nonprofit serving Northern Colorado. In order to provide mentors to local youth who need extra support, we rely on our communities to come together in support of our mission. We are fortunate to have so many community partners and donors to help us make a difference in the lives of local youth.
In line with our vision of enriching lives and building community as leaders in youth mentoring, our main focus is on the children we serve. The goal of our programs is to provide assets and protective factors for youth facing risk factors through one-to-one mentoring relationships. Through mentoring, life skills, on-going recreational and educational activities, and community service opportunities, Partners helps give participants a better chance to succeed in life. The specific objectives of these long-term, mentoring relationships are to:
- Promote positive youth development
- Increase self-esteem and self-confidence
- Prevent alcohol and drug use
- Prevent juvenile delinquency
- Provide support for abuse and neglect victims
- Enhance school bonding and academic performance
Additionally, we seek to enrich the lives of community members and create meaningful ways for positive, caring adults to get involved. Our volunteer roles provide a unique opportunity for community members to engage with the next generation, and do their part to shape the future. For those who would like to lend their support in another way, our giving opportunities allow donors to feel confident that they are investing in an effective and efficient agency that’s dedicated to local youth.
One in every three young people in the United States will reach adulthood without a mentor.1 Every one of our children has the potential to be great with a little extra support, and every one of our children deserves that little extra support. It takes a community to raise a child. Join our community, and help us narrow the gap.
