Here at Aurora Youth Options we work with Middle and High School-aged youth and their families to navigate, connect and provide positive, individualized resources to help youth thrive. We are in a time of great change and adaptation and with your help we can assist each other during these times. Our "business as usual" means that we are in contact with one another face to face and leaning on each other as we relate through similar interest, personalities, and life experiences. Are you wanting to support a young person in need now, and in the future? Join AYO as we connect virtually with our community with the hope of moving forward with face to face soon. Once we are back to business as we know it in the mentoring world, matches are provided free tickets to cultural events such as Nuggets, Rockies, and Avalanche games, the Denver Zoo, the Museum of Nature and Science, the Art Museum, and plays and musicals. Mentors have regular contact with Mentor Specialists for monthly feedback, coaching, and support as needed. We look forward to connecting!

About Aurora Mental Health & Recovery

Location:

1290 Chambers Rd, Aurora, CO 80011, US

Mission Statement

Navigation of Community Resources, Mentoring, Tutoring, Substance Use Prevention and Youth Leadership.

Description

Aurora Youth Options (AYO) is the youth prevention team of Aurora Mental Health & Recovery. AYO works with middle and high-school-aged youth and their families, helping young people gain life skills and confidence for personal success and happiness. AYO assesses each individual youth to determine what resources would be best, offer support and make the connection.

Referrals include mentoring, existing community resources, pro-social activities or enhancing life skill-building.

Nearly half the young people between the ages of 10 and 18 live in challenging situations that put them at risk of not living up to their potential. They need a listening ear and gentle guidance that can turn a negative situation into a life lesson.

Our staff, volunteers, and mentors nurture and help young people grow their personal and professional skills leading to greater happiness and a better outlook as they come into adulthood
