Windsor County Partners is now in its fifth decade of building healthy communities through youth mentoring. We create and support mentoring partnerships by matching caring, screened adults with Windsor County youth.

Our community-based program, PALS (Partners Always Lend Support) serves ages 7-18 throughout Windsor County. Adult volunteers complete an application (available to download from our website), a full background check, and comprehensive training. Each volunteer is then matched with one of our wonderful kids to share two hours per week of cross-generational fun, engaging in activities that the pair selects together. In addition to the activities that the pairs do on their own, WCP also organizes optional monthly All Partner Events, where mentoring pairs gather as a group.

Visit our website for more information and follow us on Facebook for our latest news and events.

Our mentors are reliable, caring adults who wish to make a difference in the life of a child through a friendship.
