Gunnison Country Partners is an affiliate of Partners Mentoring Association. Partners is a youth mentoring organization founded in 1990 by a group of citizens who believed that caring adults can make a positive and tangible difference in the lives of youth. Since its inception, Partners has continually expanded its role as the only youth organization of its type in the Gunnison-Hinsdale area to serve an increasingly diverse population of youth with a variety of positive, alcohol-and-drug-free programs and services.
The hallmark of Partners’ growth has been its dedication to working in a collaborative and cooperative way with community organizations and agencies whose missions include serving youth and their families.
Since opening its doors in 1990, Partners has provided directly, or financially supported, services to over 2,400 Gunnison Country youth.

In the Spring of 2010 we moved into a new building that Partners was able to buy and own outright! Partners bought the “old” Sage Mountain School building, a three-year old school house which now serves as the Gunnison Country Partners headquarters.
Also located on this lot is an original brick school house built in 1883! Partners plans to re-vitalize this old school and bring it back as a community resource. Please check out this page for more information!
