2013 Christmas for Kids Campaign
The holiday season is the time to give back and we ask that you consider supporting our youth.
Help us reach our goal of $100,000 to support 70 youth in our program for 2014!
Partners Mentoring Youth and Northern Colorado Active 20/30 Foundation are combining forces again this holiday season to support vulnerable youth in both northern Colorado. We are excited to kick-off the 2013 Christmas for Kids Campaign. This campaign is a year-end appeal to support 70 youth in the Partners mentoring program with a goal of raising $100,000 by December 31, 2013.
A highlight during this campaign is a life-skill activity for Partners youth organized by NOCO Active 20/30 members. This life-skill activity will take place on Saturday, December 7th where over 150 northern Colorado youth, with their adult mentors, will be set loose in Walmart, armed with a gift card. Their mission - a holiday shopping spree! But this is not your ordinary shopping spree. Youth will seek out gifts for family members so they can share this joyous season with their loved ones. In the process, youth will acquire life skills by developing a shopping list, budgeting, and most importantly, thinking about what might make that special someone in their life happy. After the shopping spree, everyone will head to the Embassy Suites for a gift-wrapping session and breakfast provided by Embassy Suites.
The Partners mentoring program creates and supports mentoring relationships between positive adult role models and youth facing challenges in their lives. After a year in the Partners mentoring program youth show increased self-esteem and self-confidence, decreased alcohol, drug use and juvenile delinquency, and improved academic performance and future outlook. Your investment in these youth will result in a stronger and more vibrant community.
