ABOUT BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS OF COLORADO 

Since 1918, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado (BBBSC) has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is incredible potential. As part of the nation’s largest donor- and volunteer-supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages nine through young adulthood in Colorado. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people. 

BBBSC serves youth through a portfolio of mentoring programs. 

Community-based is a traditional mentoring program. Mentee/mentor matches determine activities of mutual interest and meet two to four times per month. 

Sports Buddies is an innovative mentoring program started by BBBSC in 2000. Mentee/mentor matches meet one to two times per month for sports-based activities that are planned, scheduled, and overseen by BBBSC staff. 

• The mentor2.0 program matches youth attending a partner high school one-to-one with an adult mentor starting in high school and through the first year of post-secondary education or training. Matches in mentor2.0 communicate and build their relationship through weekly email exchanges using the research-based “College Ready” curriculum.
