Partners MAKES A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE in the lives of Routt County youth by facilitating partnerships between adult volunteers and youth.
Take a moment to think of the people in your life who have helped you get to where you are today. People who have provided guidance, believed in your potential and helped you reach it. That is what caring volunteers are doing everyday in our community and schools. Partners in Routt County serves over 400 youth each year through our One-to-One and School-Based Mentoring programs.
Megan McCord, School-Based Mentor since August of 2011 and Senior Partner since April 2012 says this about her experience, “A highlight of being a school based mentor is having kids come up to me and literally say ‘you have made a difference in my life’ I mean that is our mission and it is happening! I became a Senior Partner because I saw that sometimes they (the youth) need more…. outside of the school setting, someone who can provide opportunities they otherwise wouldn’t have, like snowboarding, and the additional quality adult role modeling."
As you remember those who have made a difference in your life, we ask you to consider "paying it forward" by making a donation, becoming a mentor, or encouraging someone you know to get involved.
A donation of any size is greatly appreciated and valued. Thank for your investment in the lives of Routt County youth.
