Community-Based, One-to-One Mentoring

PRC’s One-to-One Youth Mentoring program serves youth, ages 6-17 who are referred by other youth serving professionals for the purpose of receiving additional support and encouragement from a positive adult mentor. Each youth (Junior Partner) is matched with an adult volunteer (Senior Partner) who is recruited, screened, trained, and supervised by PRC. The Senior Partner makes a commitment to spend a few hours a week with his or her Junior Partner for a minimum of one year. The Senior Partner serves as friend, advocate, and role model to the Junior Partner.  Click here to read more.

Partners in Routt County School Based Mentoring program places mentors in eight schools in Routt County including: Steamboat Springs, South Routt, Hayden, & North Routt.  School Based Mentors (SBMs) are screened, trained and supported by our Program Manager as well as a designated Site-Supervisor from each school. Participating students (Target Students) are identified by teachers, counselors and administrators based on qualifying criteria. SBMs spend a minimum of one hour a week with each target student for the entire school year assisting them with academics, social-emotional learning, and goal planning. They also plan and implement weekly in-school and after-school programs and service learning opportunities for target students and all other students in their school. School Based Mentors spend an average of 20-25 hours a week at their school site. These are seasonal, paid positions.
