Aurora Youth Options (AYO) works with middle and high
school-aged youth and their families to navigate, connect and provide positive, individualized resources to help youth thrive.

Aurora Youth Options
Mentoring Matters!

Aurora Youth Options
, Aurora Mental Health Center's youth service and mentoring program, is featured as among the top 50 mentoring programs in the United States by Esquire magazine. Esquire
looked at hundreds of organizations and focused on three criteria to arrive at the ones listed throughout their database—reasonable adherence to the Elements of Effective Practice for Mentoring guide, developed by MENTOR, the national mentoring organization; expert referrals; and potential interest to men. See for more information. Congratulations, AYO!

Come to our next Mentor Happy Hour Wednesday March 4th from 5:30-7:30pm at the Punch Bowl Social: 65 Broadway Denver, CO to discuss motivating our youth for academic success!
