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 Colorado Nonprofit Development Center ensures the necessary foundation for enduring influence and long-term success of nonprofit organizations. CNDC’s mission is to foster the development of a healthy and vibrant nonprofit sector in Colorado by enhancing the effective and efficient use of community resources and by supporting the development of charitable projects and nonprofits.

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.
