Where is the Need?

“I gave up on myself – you helped me believe again.”

75 kids in the Denver area need a mentor.

Mentoring = Connection

The number one reason youth give when requesting a mentor is "I want someone to talk with." We annually provide over 400 youth with the simple gift of a listening ear and connection.
