By Halo Jobson, Colorado Youth at Risk
Colorado Youth at Risk is about saving lives. We are local one-on-one mentoring organization and we change the lives of over 300 at-risk youth every year. An example of one youth is Theron. His parents held him back in the 8th grade and he interpreted that as everyone giving up on him. He started to lash out and was tempted by gangs. CYAR connected him with a mentor and now he is back on track. He is now captain of the Manual High School debate team and has won city competitions and is now trying to win state! He also applied to college this fall and we are all anxiously awaiting to hear where he will end up.
You want to know what a mentor looks like? Look in the mirror! Become a mentor with CYAR, help a young person realize that life does have endless possibilities and their dreams can happen.
