This year is the hundredth anniversary of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado mentoring programs. Since 1918, BBBS of Colorado has offered programs that match adults (Bigs) and youth (Littles) for mentoring relationships.
The organization provides programs that are community-based, sports-centric, and/or academics-focused. Bigs and Littles foster connections through meetings and participating in events and activities together.
With these programs, Littles develop self-confidence, improve academically and develop healthy habits that continue into their adult lives. This demonstrates the lasting impact of the program on its members.
On October 18, BBBS of Colorado marked their centennial at the Big Night Out Gala. The event gathered community leaders, philanthropists, along with current Bigs and Littles. It honored volunteers and corporate partners that helped throughout the organization’s century-long effort to guide Colorado youth.
Scott Reiman is an avid supporter of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado. He spent several years volunteering as a mentor and recognizes the connections it leaves for former and current members. He congratulates Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado on 100 years of mentoring Colorado’s Littles towards big futures.
