Enroll a Youth

If you believe having an additional adult role model in your child’s life would be a good thing, then you’ve come to the right place. 

Every year, we match hundreds of youth in La Plata County with an adult volunteer mentor who is ready, willing, and able to provide a child with the friendship, guidance, and advice s/he needs to achieve a brighter future.

To qualify, children are generally between the ages of 6 to 17.  Each match will also be assigned a program manager to provide the volunteer (Big), your child (Little), and you, guidance and support throughout the match.

Since volunteers are carefully screened, and we try to find the adult mentor that best fits the personality and interests of your child, it could take several months before we find your child’s match.

There is no cost to you to have your child join our program.  And more than one child per family can join at any time  Our only request is that each child be committed to this program for 4-6 hours per month on average, for a minimum of one year.

Please don’t forget to complete all of the application to expedite the process,
especially your Contact Information (email, phone, etc.).
