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.

School-Based Mentoring

This program places both AmeriCorps and non-AmeriCorps members in each of ten different Routt County schools.  They 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 as needing some addition academic and/or social/emotional support.  The Mentors spend a minimum of one hour a week with each target student for the entire school year assisting them with academics, social-emotional issues and making good decisions. 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.  Click here to read more.
