Our Work


Every young person in Colorado will have the supportive relationships they need to grow, connect, and thrive.


To advance the quality and extend the reach of youth mentoring organizations in Colorado.


MENTOR Colorado is a proud Affiliate of MENTOR, the leading activator of our nation's mentoring movement. 



At the heart of both mentoring and the work of supporting programs is being connected. We recognize the humanity of one another first and endeavor to connect with staff, leadership, board members, youth, volunteers, funders, subject-matter experts, and thought-leaders to build relationships across the field.

We are driven by the tenets of servant leadership, and our work is in service of both young people and those who support them. We are guided by the motto: "nothing about them without them."

We believe that our services and our community are for all. We strive to include and welcome a broad array of ideas, expertise, people, and organizations to ensure that young people have the agency and self-determination to shape their own futures.

We know that mentoring and growth does not happen without people being real with each other. Subsequently, we work to create welcoming spaces where people and organizations can show up authentically.

Mentoring often inspires life-long learning. We as individuals and as an organization are continuously evolving to be our best selves in service of the future of mentoring in Colorado.
