Cultivating Connection

Tier 1 and 2 MENTOR Colorado Partners are new or existing youth mentoring programs that demonstrate commitment to quality practices and standards, based on the Elements of Effective Practice for Mentoring™. Additionally, community and government agencies that share our passion for mentoring are selected to join as Tier 3 Community Partners by invitation only. Cultivating this network of connection elevates the quality and increases the quantity of mentoring in our state.

Partnership members enjoy the benefits of collaborating with MENTOR Colorado, the statewide convener of mentoring, and MENTOR, the country’s leading activator of the mentoring movement.

While there is no cost to join the Partnership, we do conduct an annual membership giving campaign to allow organizations the opportunity to donate towards making MENTOR Colorado a sustainable and effective organization.
