We are a youth development organization providing at-risk youth with educational, emotional, and spiritual skills for success through long-term mentoring relationships.
We collaborate with individuals and groups in the community to increase awareness of kids' resilience and to support their success. Save Our Youth mentors bring experience, compassion, and time to provide kids a caring advocate by their side.
The History of Save Our Youth
Denver’s “Summer of Violence” exposed the dire straits kids were facing throughout the city. Random shootings and increased gang activity involving local young people demanded a response, and area leaders organized to identify and address the issue.
Save Our Youth is established. Through mentor relationships, we sought to address the educational, emotional, and spiritual needs of youth who struggled with life's challenges.
To address a need for career guidance and more sustainable wages, we facilitated the launch of another 501(c)(3), The Master's Apprentice. This organization prepares young men and women for well-paying jobs in any number of trades.
In response to requests from school administrators and concerned community members, we expanded our programming to the Parker community.
We serve over 300 kids around Denver through an all-encompassing mentoring program.
