Chaffee County Mentors Plus

Salida and Buena Vista Mentor


Mentors Plus

Mentors Plus ages 13 – 21 who are already involved in a higher level of support in our community (such as Youth@Crossroads, Probation, or Health & Human Services). Each youth is matched with a mentor with previous experience working with adolescents and who is able to spend between 3 to 6 hours per week with their mentee for a commitment of a year.

Mentors Plus collaborate with parents/schools/therapists/caseworkers/probation officers and others to work towards mutually agreed upon goals. Interventions are strengths-based and solution-focused to strengthen resiliency, break barriers, and encourage change.

Mentors and their mentees have the opportunity to participate in monthly group activities and other structured benefits throughout the Chaffee County area.
