Become a Mentor and Change the Life of a Child.
Thank you to all of our sponsors, donors, buyers, volunteers, and everyone else who supported our annual Auction fundraiser
Partners of Delta, Montrose and Ouray Colorado is a non-profit organization working toward a future where every child receives positive guidance and encouragement from a mentor. Within our communities, Partners provides many opportunities for you to share your talents and energy with our youth.
Delta Montrose Youth Services incorporated in October 1986 and began doing business as Delta Montrose Partners in 1987 after achieving full affiliate status from the Partners Mentoring Association. All Partners Affiliates adhere to a strict set of Accreditation Standards for youth mentoring that make Partners one of the most effective one to one mentoring programs in the country. Initially, Delta Montrose Partners served youth aged 6 to 17 in Delta and east Montrose Counties but, in 1994, at the request of local youth serving agencies, the service area was extended to include Ouray, San Miguel and west Montrose Counties. We became West Four County Partners with our primary office in Montrose and satellite offices in Ouray, Delta and Telluride. In 1998, San Miguel County decided to form an independent youth program and Delta Montrose Youth Services began doing business as Partners of Delta, Montrose and Ouray. Today, Partners maintains offices in Delta, Montrose and Ridgway.
Our organizational goals, established in 1986, have remained the same. They are to promote youth development, building a sense of social responsibility and self-esteem; to reduce and prevent delinquency and substance abuse through a variety of services emphasizing volunteer participation and community involvement; to develop youths' skills and abilities so they can make positive changes and become responsible citizens; to increase community awareness of the problems youth face and foster and implement a commitment by the community to solve these problems.
The mission of Partners of Delta, Montrose and Ouray counties is to offer and support positive life experiences for at risk youth by providing one to one mentorship with an adult volunteer.
