The AB will primarily fulfill this mission by identifying, attracting and retaining financial resources for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado, Inc., specifically through corporate partnerships, professional or personal networks. The Associate Board will also advocate for resources that support mentee education, increase visibility and awareness of our programming, and support mentor recruitment.
