If you're a Colorado volunteer who wants to spend time with the youth in our community, then the Senior Partner role is a great option, not to mention a lot of fun! Senior Partners commit an average of three hours a week with the same youth (Junior Partner) for a minimum of one year in a one-to-one mentoring relationship called a Partnership.

So what exactly does it mean to be in a mentoring relationship? And are you qualified? Here are a few activities that our Partnerships enjoy:
Playing video games
Hiking
Cooking
Going to movies
Attending sporting events
Doing arts and crafts
Taking the family dog for a walk
And much more!

If you enjoy activities such as these, then the three hours a week are a breeze. Our Senior Partners come in all shapes, sizes, ages and activity levels and also from a wide variety of vocations and backgrounds. It's really about sharing who you are and hanging out with a youth in the community who just wants to spend some time having fun.

You can make a huge difference in the life of a youth just by doing activities that you already enjoy!And the time our Senior Partners spend with their Junior Partners really does matter. Youth going through our program show:
Increased levels of self-esteem
Increased school performance
More future-oriented thinking
Decrease in negative attitudes and behaviors

It's amazing what a little time investment can mean to the youth in our community! And they're not the only ones who benefit. Our Senior Partners find the experience not only fun, but very rewarding! The powerful influence of role models works both ways."I've had the opportunity to meet a new friend and, at the same time, know that I'm making a difference in someone's life." Senior Partner, age 51

Senior Partners also have the opportunity to attend a Mentor Training prior to being matched with a Junior Partner, where they learn about the benefits that consistent mentoring relationships can offer our youth.
