MILLIONS OF CHILDREN IN THE U.S. NEED A CARING ADULT ROLE MODEL.
When young people have the influence of a caring adult mentor, they are more likely to avoid risky behaviors
and to focus on academics. Today's youth face a variety of challenges and being matched with a mentor,
Big Brother or Big Sister, can help them navigate these challenges to reach their potential.
The mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado is to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.
All youth achieve their full potential.
