Partners of Delta, Montrose and Ouray is a nonprofit organization dedicated to building one-to-one mentoring partnerships between young people and responsible, caring adults. Youth with a mentor in the Partners programs benefit from increased self-esteem, academic improvements, pro-socio bonding. They are also less likely to become delinquent or experiment with substance use. Having a mentor opens a world of opportunities for a youth, shaping a successful future one experience at a time. Partners serves youth ages 6 -17 that could benefit from a positive adult role model.
