1 in 3 youth will grow up without a mentor of any type.

You don’t need a cape to be a hero. You just need to care.

Legacy Youth Mentoring

We’re are the friendship-based, in school, youth mentoring program of the Jackson County, Jefferson City, and Commerce City School Systems. We match caring volunteer mentors with students ages K-12 who will benefit from the encouragement and guidance of a mentor.

Mentors meet with their student for 30 minutes each week.


Our Mission:

Legacy Youth Mentoring empowers lives through one-on-one mentoring, helping youth make positive life choices and discover their strengths to guide them toward personal and academic success.

We envision a community where every youth will have a mentoring friendship and know with certainty that someone cares about them and wants to help.


Become a difference maker.
