MENTOR Colorado is grateful to work with incredible partners who are mission-aligned, and who help us be more efficient and impactful with our work.
The National Mentoring Partnership (MENTOR) is the unifying champion for expanding quality youth mentoring relationships in the United States. For more than 25 years, MENTOR has served the mentoring field by providing a public voice; developing and delivering resources to mentoring programs nationwide; and promoting quality for mentoring through evidence-based standards, innovative research and essential tools. MENTOR has developed and supports a national network of affiliate Mentoring Partnerships like MENTOR Colorado that provide regional, state and local leadership and infrastructure necessary to support the expansion of quality mentoring relationships. Together, we engage with the private, public and nonprofit sectors to ensure that all youth have the support they need through mentoring relationships to succeed at home, school and, ultimately, work.
The Eagle River Youth Coalition works to make the community we live in a stronger, more vibrant place for youth and families. ERYC’s is to continuously and collaboratively improve the lives of youth in the most powerful ways possible. We strive to understand, inform, engage, empower and transform. Remember, “You Are Not Alone.”
The White House announced the My Brother’s Keeper (MBK) initiative in February 2014. Through this national initiative, the City and County of Denver shares the vision of the MBK Alliance, which is to make the American Dream available to all boys and young men of color by eliminating gaps in their opportunities and outcomes. The Office of Children’s Affairs is working collaboratively with youth, community members, nonprofit organizations, educational institutions, businesses and other government agencies to identify the issues that most often keep boys and young men of color from achieving success. Together, we are designing comprehensive strategies and laying the groundwork to create opportunities, so they can reach their full potential.
The Collaborative Management Program (CMP) is the voluntary development of multi-agency services provided to children and families by county departments of human / social services and other mandatory agencies including local judicial districts, including probation; the local health department, the local school district(s), each community mental health center and each Mental Health Assessment and Service Agency (BHO).
Rocky Mountain Cradle to Career Partnership (RMC2C) is a coalition of cross-sector partners who are focused on using a rigorous approach to get better results for young people. RMC2C is convened on one simple principle: Those who care about a community’s youth — from parents and educators to civic leaders and local employers — can accomplish more by working together than by working apart. RMC2C is part of a national movement that is breaking down barriers, changing systems, and improving outcomes for youth, their families, and the community as a whole.
This network has adopted a nationally recognized collective impact framework that provides a process for setting common goals, improving outcomes and expanding opportunities for every young person through guiding principles and a continuum of quality benchmarks. RMC2C partners have committed to ensuring ALL youth succeed so that they enter the workforce with the skills and credentials needed to support themselves and their families and are holding each other accountable for getting results.
