Peer Mentor Program
After parents, peers have the greatest influence on kids’ lives. The First Tee of Denver partners high school students with younger at-risk kids. Mentors have the tools, the voice, and the opportunity to make a positive impact. As a result, both mentors and mentees develop the character and skills they need to reach their goals in life. This program is unique because it encourages both the mentor and mentee to make positive decisions and build character. It is a peer-driven effort, where the mentor and mentee encourage and guide each other through the building blocks of success. Mentors and mentees who encourage one another to be kind to others, to set healthy goals for themselves and to work hard to attain them can be a catalyst for change.Through mutual encouragement and the monthly activities, both mentor and mentee will learn about healthy relationships, positive communication, determination, and using good judgement.
How the Program Works:
-Children are matched with a high-school aged mentor
-Participants attend 2 supervised group events a month
-The program comes at no cost to your family, we just ask that you get your child to and from events
