Partners Mentoring Youth Community Engagement VISTA
 
 
 
Partners Mentoring Youth serves both Larimer and Weld Counties; this position will be based in the Greeley, Colorado office. The mission of Partners Mentoring Youth is to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships between positive adult role models and youth facing challenges in their personal, social and academic lives. Partners’ unique structure of intensive case management, focused education and structured activities provides the necessary foundation to ensure the development of supportive mentoring Partnerships. In addition, we continue to support activities that incorporate developmental and cultural characteristics of our youth. We operate both Community Based and School Based Mentoring programs. In our Community Based Mentoring program, youth (Junior Partner) are matched with adult mentors (Senior Partner) for a minimum of one year (12 months) in the community. Youth first join our waiting list, where we have the opportunity to get to know them and they can participate in monthly group activities. After volunteer mentors are screened and trained, they are matched with a youth. In our School Based Mentoring program, youth (Junior Partner) are matched with adult mentors (Senior Partner) for a minimum of one academic year (9 months) within the school setting. Youth and adult mentors are recruited during the spring/summer and matched by the time school starts. The Community Engagment VISTA will become adept in activities related to non-profit management, such as community engagement strategies, developing written and verbal communication skills, and learning the fundamentals of event planning. The VISTA member will also have the ability to experience many different opportunities by working at a small organization in an area of high need.
