Mentoring in Parker
In 2016, after more than 20 years serving the immediate Denver area, Save Our Youth began working in Parker. This development came in response to community calls for a mentoring program to address the distinct challenges of suburban youth. Save Our Youth currently serves students at Legend High School, Cimarron Middle School, and Sierra Middle School. Through regular time spent with their mentors, students consistently grow more connected to their families, neighborhoods, and schools.
Citywide, 424 kids, ages 10-17, were served by Save Our Youth’s mentoring program in 2017.
Save Our Youth facilitated 68 new mentoring matches around Denver in 2017.
The average mentoring match lasts 36 months, while the national average is 9 months.
