Many young people get into trouble because they lack the experience coping with problems and pressures that exist in their lives at home, in school and in the community. PARTNERS believes that a one to one relationship with a successfully coping adult can help a young person learn skills that will improve his/her adjustment to social expectations.
PARTNERS believes in holding youth accountable for their actions while supporting them and teaching them new skills. The goal is to help young people become independent and productive members of society.
Partners offers many programs, including One-to-One Mentoring, Restitution/ Community Service Work Program, Victim Empathy/Victim-Offender Mediation Program, Minor in Possession Classes and the Western Colorado Conservation Corps.
Rotarians were proud when President George H.W. Bush named Partners as a Point of Light to recognize its effectiveness.
Redlands Rotary holds its "St. Patrick's Day Massacre'' each March with proceeds going to Partners.
The 2017 "St. Patrick's Day Massacre" will be held on Friday, March 17 at Two Rivers Convention Center.
Recent Superstars events have raised nearly $20,000 for Partners.

It was a fantastic 2017 Redlands Rotary St. Patrick's Day Massacre! More than $12,875 dollars in under an hour to benefit Partners, the Partners' Foundation, and the Rotary Foundation! On the day of the event, in true Redlands Rotary fashion, we placed 15th in the events and still ended up WINNING the day! Another fine 1st place win at the Partners Superstars event for Redlands Rotary!
Our club's passion is supporting Mesa County Partners, one of the most successful mentoring and restitution programs in the nation.
