Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado Programming in Denver

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado pic Big Brother Big Sisters of Colorado, Inc., provides opportunities for at-risk children and adolescents throughout the state to connect with positive role models. The organization operates a number of programs in Denver for the benefit of youth in and around the city. The flagship program is community-based mentoring through which volunteers are matched with children. Together, they engage in a wide range of activities several times each month. The organization supports these relationships with various enrichment activities.

The organization has also partnered with Cole Arts and Science Academy to create the Cole Impact Mentoring Program. This initiative, which is similar to the basic mentoring program, focuses on education. Bigs engage in opportunities both in the community and at school with their Littles. Activities should address the specific challenges that each student faces at school.

Fort Logan Impact, a site-based mentoring program, allows volunteers to participate in various sports-related activities in a supervised setting. Biweekly sessions take place at Fort Logan Elementary School and Sheridan Middle School.

The Sports Buddies Program allows Bigs and Littles to engage in organized activities, such as attending sporting events and playing team sports. In this program, volunteers commit at least six months and spend time with their matches once or twice monthly.
