About Partners

Partners has been serving youth and families since our organization was founded in 1978. Through the years we have continually sought to best meet the needs of our community, and have expanded our programs, service area, and mission to do so.

Our programs are based on a prevention-based approach to serve kids who are facing risk factors and challenges a positive adult mentor or proven curriculum can help address.

Partners has always been dedicated to growing to meet community needs. When it was clear that we should expand to have offices in Estes Park and Greeley, we did so. When we saw there was a need for more adult support in schools, we created our School-Based Mentoring program in conjunction with local school districts. When our community was at-risk of losing important universal prevention education services, we expanded our mission and programming.

Partners Mission:

The Partners mission is to empower youth and community members to achieve their full potential through mentoring, prevention education and strategic partnership.
