At Partners Mentoring Youth, our vision is to enrich lives and build community as leaders in youth mentoring.
We are dedicated to Northern Colorado youth who are facing significant challenges in their lives. Since 1978, Partners Mentoring Youth has been pursuing our mission to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships between positive adult role models and youth facing challenges in their personal, social, and academic lives.
Through our mentoring programs, Partners Mentoring Youth serves hundreds of youth in Larimer and Northern Weld counties. In 2015, we worked with nearly 400 youth in our communities; in 2016, our goal is to grow our reach to serve 450 children. Our mentors volunteer thousands of hours each year supporting youth who need it most.
We focus on ensuring we are providing the best possible services for our youth by providing research-based programs that follow best practices in youth mentoring. We collect data from our partnerships for our annual evaluation to ensure our programs make a difference—and they do! After one year in our programs, youth with mentors gain relationship and interpersonal skills, more confidence, improved attitudes about substance use, and hope for the future.

Our Fiesta 5K Race in Greeley has grown into a fun party-atmosphere run over the past 3 years. This fun run is held in May at Island Grove in Greeley and the course is USTAF certified. Fiesta 5K is the kickoff event for the Healthy Kids Running Series. This event is dog-friendly, stroller-friendly, and we love when families participate together. Youth under 17 can run in the Fiesta 5K race for free (when accompanied by an adult), plus we hold a 1-mile kids fun run prior to the main race.
Fiesta 5K is the second race in the Partners Mentoring Youth Race Series. This race is a family favorite, bringing over 200 individuals together in support of mentoring. You can receive discounted registration when you register for the race series.!
