Denver Kids pairs qualifying students in our program with adult volunteer mentors for a minimum of one year. Mentors work closely with a student’s Educational Counselor to position students for success, understanding their unique goals and challenges. Mentors spend a few hours each month with their mentee, engaging in a variety of activities that may include movies, concerts, ball games, and museum visits. And sometimes, just hanging out and talking.
I have been matched with my mentor for 12 years and there’s no end to what he has helped me accomplish. He has helped me grow into the young man I am and influenced me as if he were a father figure.
