+ 501(c)(3) NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION
Fort Bend Partnership for Youth, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that operates as an auxiliary agency for the Fort Bend County Juvenile Probation Department by financially supporting a variety of programs and projects, including many in the Special Programs Unit.
In 1996, an attorney who specialized in working with juveniles had just finished defending his young client before the judge. Frustrated he turned to the judge and remarked, "This kid has so much going against him, but he's not a hardened criminal yet. How can we get him the support he needs?"
That question led to the formation of a group of concerned public officials who began the process of developing a community-based agency that would become involved in the growing problem of juvenile delinquency in Fort Bend County. The focus of the group was to develop a mentoring agency. Out of this desire, Fort Bend Partnership for Youth, Inc. was created in late 1996. The Internal Revenue Service deemed that the organization was a 501C(3) agency.

Volunteer Special Programs
Adult mentors from the community are recruited, screened and trained. After clearance, the mentor is carefully matched by gender and geographical proximity with a youth that is currently involved with the Fort Bend County Juvenile Probation Department. These juveniles are between the ages of 10 and 17 and are living in their home. Each week , the mentor will offer one-to-one support and encouragement by participating in activities such as: talking at the park, playing sports, going to the movies, having dinner, going to the library, etc. This program provides the juvenile an opportunity to spend quality time with a positive adult role model.
Fort Bend County Zip Codes
Adult mentors from the community are recruited, screened and trained to provide visitation to juveniles in the Fort Bend County Juvenile Probation Detention Center. The juveniles chosen to receive a mentor are usually those that do not have anyone coming to visit them, are going to be there longer than average, and just need one-to-one visits. This program is designed for mentors to provide support, listen and encourage the juvenile while they are being detained in the detention center. Visits occur in the center at designated times.
