Mentor

In addition to their professional Educational Counselor, many Denver Kids students are paired with a volunteer mentor. Mentors serve as a consistent, trusted personal and professional role model, helping students navigate new experiences, empowering them to reach for their dreams, and transforming their future. And our students need you now more than ever.
One on One Mentoring
  • Meet with your mentee at least twice per month (about 8-12 hours per month which includes 1:1 outings, drive time to/from outings, and phone contact time) for a minimum of one year. 1:1 outing activity examples may include: spending time at the park, going bowling, trying out a new cuisine, hanging out and talking, and more!
  • Participate in pre and post-match training sessions.
  • Get invited to various optional mentor/student enrichment events and mentor-only networking events.
  • Mentees in 1:1 Mentoring reside across Metro Denver and are typically middle and high school aged.
One on One Mentoring + Community
  • All of the above, however, one of your two outings per month includes participating in a Monthly Community Event where you and your mentee will gather with other mentor/mentee matches to build community. Events are held on the same night of the month at a DPS school, starting at 6pm.
  • The other outing each month is with your mentee doing an activity together in Denver.
  • Mentees in 1:1 Mentoring + Community typically reside and go to school in west Denver, and will most likely be middle-school-aged.

*At this time, we are actively recruiting mentors who live in the city of Denver. We currently are not taking applicants who live in Boulder, Castle Rock, Parker or Highlands Ranch due to the proximity to our students. Please refer to the above description of both mentor programs to understand geographic needs for mentors in each of these programs.

For more information about our mentoring program, please contact Audrey Reyes at audrey_reyes@dpsk12.org.
