Program Description

Our Mission

Colorado Youth at Risk empowers teenage students to make life choices that positively impact their future through community-based mentoring and intensive training. Colorado Youth at Risk aims to reduce the number of high school dropouts, match students with an adult mentor and provide students with a sense of the future and their place in that future.

Our Vision

We deliver bold, dynamic programs throughout Colorado, which produce extraordinary results and inspire life-long growth for young people and those around them. We provide a life changing volunteer experience that people clamor to be a part of. Our volunteers are inspired and empowered to be leaders. We thrive upon abundant, broad-based, long-term funding. We are entrepreneurs. We are leaders who are self expressed, diverse and committed to a future of possibility. We create miracles.
