Mentor Colorado supports the National Quality Mentoring System (NQMS). NQMS reviews all aspect of a program to assure ethical standards of practice that safeguard youth and volunteers. This approach is designed to encourage broad, inclusive, and efficient QMS adoption by state mentoring partnerships across the country. In partnership both believe that this system for understanding, supporting and growing quality programs is the crux of mentoring in Colorado.
In January 2019, AYO Mentor Program was awarded the National Quality Mentoring System Silver Partner Badge. AYO received a 98.9 out of 100 with perfect scores in direct relationship to mentor / mentee contact, and protocol.
