Stepping Stones is a community-based youth mentoring program that operates drop-in centers for youth ages  10 - 21 in the

Roaring Fork Valley. 

WHAT WE DO

Our philosophy is that strong, long-term relationships with positive adult role models are the key to empowering youth and their families. Our drop-in centers are open five days a week, and provide a diverse, bilingual atmosphere where participants and staff share meaningful life experiences and challenges.

 

To meet the varied needs of our participants, Stepping Stones offers essential services and programming free of charge, including skill development, nightly meals, basic needs assistance, educational support, family engagement, and experiential programming. Our centers function as a community hub to connect youth and families with the supports they need to thrive. Our Youth Program serves ages 10 to 14, and our Young Adult Program serves ages 15 to 21. In each component of our work, Stepping Stones seeks to empower youth to reach self-sufficiency, through risk-prevention and crisis intervention services.
