  • mentor2.0 Mentor2.0 matches students from Sheridan High School with college-educated mentors and provides them with the support and guidance they need to graduate high school and succeed in college and the workforce. Mentor/mentee matches get to know each other through an innovative combination of weekly online messages (via a secure web-based platform) and monthly group meetings at the high school that mentor2.0 organizes and hosts.
  • Sports Buddies Program (visit Sports Buddies page)
    Bigs and Littles participate in agency-supervised and organized match activities including attending and playing team sports. Volunteers commit to a minimum of 6 months, spending time with the same child 1-2 times each month. We are now accepting applications for male volunteers.
  • Community-Based Mentoring Volunteers are matched with a child and choose a variety of mutually enjoyable activities in the community. Volunteers commit to a minimum of one year, spending time with the same child 2-4 times each month. Staff members support these relationships and plan enrichment activities.

Volunteers commit to the program for one school year and attend sessions scheduled bi-weekly on Tuesday’s or Wednesday’s from 4:00-6:00pm. Partnering schools included Greenlee Elementary (1150 Lipan St, Denver) and Fort Logan Northgate (3533 W Nassau Ave, Englewood). This program is currently at capacity.
