In January 2012, United Way of Pueblo County began a pilot mentorship program in coordination with Heaton Middle School aimed at pairing nurturing adults as positive mentors with 6th grade students. After evaluating the one semester pilot, the program showed signs of success including improvements in behavior, grades and test scores and was expanded upon to reach additional students.
To enrich the lives of Pueblo middle school students by providing opportunities to build relationships with nurturing adults who empower and encourage them through one-to-one mentoring.
That all Pueblo middle school students have access to nurturing mentors who help them develop into confident, responsible, and positive members of our community.
