We are changing lives

Collaborative
mentoring Agency

We inspire community involvement, empower youth to realize their potential, and we create hope for their future.

Get Involved

To date, Metro Denver Partners has served over 16,500 youth. Services provided to these youth and volunteers include: ongoing case management; educational/recreational activities; training for youth, parents, and volunteers; gang intervention/prevention services; and community service projects.

For a few hours a week, a couple days a month, you can give a child the irreplaceable gift of friendship. 

All young people have the potential to succeed in life & contribute to society. However, not all children get the support they need to thrive; you can change that. Play a board game, make fun crafts, take a hike; just as your options are limitless, so is your mentee’s potential.

Kids with mentors are more likely to:

  • Have better attitudes towards school
  • Have higher self-esteem
  • Avoid risky behavior
  • Get along better with adults and peers
  • Have improved interpersonal skills
  • Hold leadership positions
  • Become a mentor themselves

GRASP (Gang Rescue and Support Project) is a peer-run, intervention program that works with youth who are at-risk of gang involvement or are presently active in gangs, helps families of gang victims, and serves as a youth advocate. And, it works so well because it is run by ex-gang members who broke free of the gang life-style and turned their lives around.

The staff understand how difficult it is to make this transition and the challenges confronting youth who do it. Established in 1991 after a tragic “drive-by” shooting death of a teen, GRASP has evolved into a highly respected and successful program of Metro Denver Partners, a non-profit organization, that for over 40 years has helped kids to better futures through one-on-one mentoring.

Why we are different

Our goal is to provide youth with the discipline, maturity, and direction needed to prevent further involvement with the law and to become stable and productive members of the community. We continue to work toward that goal and have expanded our range of programs to better serve at-risk youth. As a result of being matched with adult-volunteer mentors, our youth gain self-esteem and confidence, show higher achievement and take increased personal responsibility for their own actions.
