Help Make Her-Story, Mentor an adolescent female
Metro Denver Partners
Metro Denver Partners offers adolescent females an opportunity to engage in personal growth and development through both participation in girls' group activities and also by being matched with an adult female friend, advocate, and role model as their own personal mentor. Our adult volunteers commit to a year-long relationship keeping weekly contact and receiving our program support services. We are able to work through COVID restrictions with virtual and/or in-person contacts or a transition from one to the other as COVID restrictions ease. Please contact us for more information on how to make this opportunity work for you
About Metro Denver Partners
1625 E. 35th Ave., Denver, CO 80205, US
The mission of Metro Denver Partners is to promote a safe and growth-oriented environment in which at-risk youth can develop and flourish through: friendship and commitment; mentoring and role modeling; education and guidance; and family support.
There are many kids in our community who would benefit from someone taking the time to connect with them. They want and need a caring adult to listen to what's on their mind and give them good advice. That's what mentoring is all about. You just need to be yourself, and share what you've learned from your own life experiences. It's really that easy. You'll share activities, be supportive and listen, become a friend, and show the youth you care.
Being a mentor will change a child's future. Here are some key elements of our highly successful mentoring and tutoring programs:
- One-to-one mentoring of at-risk youth in Denver
- Kids referred by community agencies
- Adult volunteer and youth commit to spending an average of three hours a week for one year together
- Extensive staff support for youth and volunteers, including: weekly contact, monthly recreational activities, life-skills' trainings, case management, and community service options
