Boulder County seeks mentors to help change the lives of juveniles
Boulder County is looking for volunteers willing to dedicate their time weekly in order to help achieve what could be life-long changes in the lives of local teens.
The Boulder County Community Services Mentor Program is seeking adults who can work well with teens, be a positive role model, and commit to three hours a week mentoring a teen – which essentially consists of spending time doing the things they love, whether that’s going to a ballgame, watching a movie or just grabbing a bite to eat.
The Mentoring Program matches adults and juveniles one-on-one in order to provide the youth with enduring links to positive supports in the community. Adult role models who are not involved in the justice system provide the teens with a unique support relationship that can promote the development of positive assets and reduce the likelihood of recidivism.
