Be the Difference Greeley Luncheon
Our most recent event was the second annual, Be the Difference luncheon in Greeley. This event was hosted by Ken and Perry Buck, catered by former Denver Bronco Simon Fletcher and Whistle Blowers BBQ. It included a powerful message by our featured keynote speaker and former Denver Bronco, Reggie Rivers as well as a touching program highlighting one of our senior partners Nomie and Mike Ketterling and their long time junior partner Eric. We are happy to announce that this event saw 100 guests and raised nearly $25,000. Thank you to all of our sponsors, donors, speakers and everyone else involved in making this event a success!

Forty in the Fourth
October marks the fourth quarter of the year, here at Partners Mentoring Youth it marks our final push to match youth who are expecting to be matched this year. Forty youth are anticipating meeting their mentor in the fourth quarter. You can help make that a reality for them.
We need 40 mentors to contact us within the month to sign up to mentor an amazing youth! If you're not already a mentor, click here to see what you are missing out on.
If you or someone you know is interested in being a mentor to one of these youth, please spread the word and contact us today!

Male Mentors Needed!
Partners is always looking for mentors, both male and female. But currently, there is a large need for male volunteers. With over 80% of the youth on our waiting list coming from single-parent households, there is a lot of opportunity for positive adult male role models to step in and make a big difference. Be it throwing a ball around, fishing, hiking or playing video games, those moments mean a lot in the life of a boy. For more information on becoming a volunteer, click here!
