Get to Know Us
Partners has been serving youth and families since our organization was founded in 1978. Through the years we have continually sought to best meet the needs of our community, and have expanded our programs, service area, and mission to do so.
Our Community-Based Mentoring Program was established as an intervention strategy for youth entering the juvenile justice system in Larimer County, and has evolved to more of prevention-based approach to serve kids who are facing risk factors at an earlier stage. When it was clear that we should expand to have offices in Estes Park and Greeley, we did so. When we saw there was a need for more adult support in schools, we created our School-Based Mentoring program in conjunction with local school districts. When our community was at-risk of losing important universal prevention education services, we expanded our mission and programming.
"When a mentor believes in you, you can turn around and believe in yourself. And when you believe in yourself, you can do just about anything."
