The mission of Friends for Youth is to support positive development for at-risk youth in the juvenile Justice and child welfare systems by providing caring adult mentors, life enriching experiences, and enhanced community connections resulting in successful life transitions. FFY has expanded its programming over the years to include four programs designed to help youth succeed once they leave their support systems. These distinct, but interrelated, components include one-to-one mentoring; site-based mentoring at schools; group mentoring activities; and the Success Journey Program, which combines the different mentoring strategies in a unique mentoring model. FFY is a sustainable, independent organization that provides unique mentoring services in the Denver metro area. It seeks to serve Colorado's at risk youth -- specifically older teens who are the most difficult to access in the child welfare and juvenile justice systems and who attend low-income at-risk schools.
