Mission Statement


The mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado is to help children reach their full potential through professionally supported, one-to-one, volunteer mentoring relationships with measurable impact.

Description


Big Brothers Big Sisters focuses our services on the rapidly growing number of youth between the ages 7 and 12 who qualify for Free and Reduced School lunch (live at or below 185% of Poverty) and who live with a single parent or caregiver. We also serve children from Fort Carson who have one or both parents deployed abroad. We achieve our mission by providing youth (Littles) with an adult friendship that is consistent, ongoing, supportive, educational, safe and fun; supplying mentors (Bigs) with the resources and support they need to be effective mentors to at-risk youth; and enhancing the ongoing relationship (Match) between a Big and a Little with intentional activities and asset-building opportunities. We know from research that we impact children by: Improving sense of self and future Improving relationships Improving attitudes towards school and academic performance Helping kids avoid delinquent behavior
