Special Friends
Special Friends is the youth mentoring program of Youth Alternatives. We provide adult volunteer mentors for youth ages 6-14 in Cheyenne and surrounding communities.

Most of the youth in the Special Friends program come from low-income, single-parent families or are involved in counseling or court services at Youth Alternatives.

Mentors spend at least three hours a week with their mentee for a period of one year. We have about 90 volunteers from all walks of life and they volunteer in many capacities, but most are one-to-one mentors. Our volunteers are dedicated to the youth of our community; we have 10 volunteers who have been in the program for 13 or more years.

Special Friends is a private 501(c)3 non-profit and a United Way of Laramie County agency.
