COMMUNITY MATCHES

While we’re not out of the COVID 19 pandemic quite yet, our lives are opening up a bit which means meeting up with those outside of our immediate quaran-TEAMs may be possible. Whew! We encourage Matches to be in regular contact embracing whatever method works for them – texting, video chats or talking on the phone.

If your family and your Mentor are comfortable, you may also meet up in safe, socially distant ways by going for a hike or bike ride, sharing a snack or meal in an outside location or paddling SUPs on local lakes.

Your child’s connection to their Mentor’s life is very important! Let us know if would like more ideas around connecting, have limits to meeting up, or would like assistance communicating with your child’s Mentor.

COMMUNITY MATCHES

Si bien todavía no estamos fuera de la pandemia de COVID 19, nuestras vidas se están abriendo un poco, lo que significa que es posible reunirnos con aquellos que están fuera de nuestros grupo de cuarentena inmediatos. ¡Uf! Alentamos a Matches a estar en contacto regular adoptando cualquier método que funcione para ellos: mensajes de texto, chats de video o hablar por teléfono.

Si su familia y su mentor se sienten cómodos, también puede reunirse de manera segura y socialmente distante yendo a caminar o en bicicleta, compartiendo un refrigerio o una comida en un lugar exterior o remando SUP en los lagos locales.

¡La conexión de su hijo con la vida de su mentor es muy importante! Háganos saber si desea obtener más ideas sobre la conexión, si tiene límites para reunirse o si desea recibir ayuda para comunicarse con el mentor de su hijo/a.

One to One Mentoring

A consistent caring adult – that’s what One to One Mentoring offers youth in San Miguel County. For over twenty years the organization has empowered youth to achieve their social, emotional, and academic potential through professionally supported mentor relationships. The matches meet once per week for a yearly commitment and together they work on homework, learn a new skill, enjoy the outdoors, read a book, and anything their hearts desire.

Fundraising Events

Our Fundraising events are vital – they provide an opportunity to brand the program within the community and help us generate funds to support the organization. For the past nine years, we’ve hosted Top Chef and Taste of Telluride in August. And, in March, we host the Cardboard Sled Derby. Throughout the year we host a variety of fun events that also raise money for the organization. The gift you make today will lead to better outcomes for our children tomorrow.

BECOME A MENTOR

Becoming a Mentor is one of the most enjoyable things you’ll ever do. Mentoring is a great way to give back to the community. In just a few hours each week, you will help shape the life of a young person in our community and in return you’ll receive much more back then you could ever think possible.

Refer A Youth

When children and teens have the influence of a caring adult, they are more likely to avoid risky behaviors and to focus on academics and other pursuits. Today’s youth face a variety of challenges, and being matched with a Mentor can help them navigate these challenges and reach their potential.

Amy G

Finding her voice through the camera lens

When Amy G came into the program she was on the shy side, she didn’t enjoy speaking in a crowd, but she loved watching plays and participating in art classes at school. Program staff at One to One noted how warm and welcoming Amy is and often commented on her big smile.

Amy was matched with Amy Levek five years ago and in that time they’ve done a range of creative endeavors together. “Anything that relates to art is a safe bet, since it brings out her natural (and deep) sense of creativity,” stated Levek.

Amy and Amy can often be seen around town, taking pictures, enjoying a meal or going to the movies. In five years, One to One Mentoring has seen Amy flourish with confidence.

“One of the most profound experiences was when I let her borrow one of my cameras and got to watch her come more and more alive as she started to see what she could do with it,” added Levek. “It was as if all the other things that were on her mind melted away. It was incredibly awesome for me to see and experience this transformation with her.”
