Our traditional program in which each Big and Little meet several times per month and choose activities to do together in the community based on shared interests and goals.
Our sports-focused program where Matches meet one or two times per month to participate in agency supervised activities that involve attending and/or participating in sports.
To be a candidate for our programs:
- Youth should be between the ages of 9 and 17.
Priority is given to youth in a single parent home, kinship care, or non-traditional family.
Priority is given to youth who are eligible for free or reduced lunch at school.
- If applying for our Community Mentoring program youth must be available a minimum of two times a month to meet with their mentor.
- If applying for our Sports Buddies program youth must be available 1-2 Saturdays a month to meet at in person events. The family must have transportation to take the child to and from the events. Unfortunately this program is not a good fit for families that use public transportation.
If the child does not meet our qualifications or is outside the 9-17 age range there are several other mentoring agencies operating in Colorado.
