Description

Join us as we celebrate 25 years of impacting lives in Colorado! Featuring special performances, Live DJ and Dancing, Food Stations, Dinner & Drinks, Live Auctions, Hollywood-style Blue Carpet! Help us recognize the community partners and supporters who have made 25 years of FRIENDS FIRST and MentorLife possible – MentorLife® means always investing in someone, and always having someone investing in you.

Who we are. FRIENDS FIRST is a nonprofit located in Denver, serving about 30-40 schools in Colorado and 10 partner states each year with our various positive youth development programs. Our mission is to educate and mentor teens to make positive life choices and develop healthy relationships.

What we do. FRIENDS FIRST coordinates STARS (Students Teaching About Relationships & Success), our signature program. STARS is a peer-to-peer mentoring program that provides support, character development and healthy relationship education to youth. Other FRIENDS FIRST programs include the STARS National Conference, parent education, classroom presentations, school assemblies and Project AIM (Adult Identity Mentoring).

Our goal. As we celebrate 25 years of educating and mentoring teens, we are working to raise $75,000 to directly advance our organization’s mission and vision. Our 25th year brings exciting times at FRIENDS FIRST. With our footprint in Colorado growing steadily, and with more out-of-state partners than ever, our STARS peer-to-peer mentoring program is to thank for so much of that noterietiy. With that growth comes new opportunity and new challenges. Without our community partnerships, new and old, we wouldn't be who we are today. With that, we still have room to grow in Colorado. We're excited for the chance to celebrate everyone who makes our mission possible and meet new people who love serving teens as much as we do!

Our theme. The Rising STARS Gala theme is geared around our STARS program and our efforts to connect more teens to mentors. Since our inception in 1993, STARS has grown exponentially as we now serve teens in more than 40 schools throughout 10 states, partnering with organizations across the country in an effort to reduce the mentoring gap.
