This year marks the hundredth anniversary of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado mentoring programs.

Since 1918, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado has offered programs that match adults (Bigs) and youth (Littles) for ongoing mentoring relationships. Currently, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado provides programs that are community-based, sports-centric, and/or academics-focused. Bigs and Littles build their relationships through regular meetings and participating in events and activities together.

Through these programs, Littles are able to build self-confidence, improve academically, and create healthy habits. These positive results are also shown to continue into the adult lives of former Littles, demonstrating the lasting impact of Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring.

On October 18, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado will be marking their centennial at the Big Night Out Gala, which will gather community leaders, philanthropists, and current Bigs and Littles. The event will honor volunteers and corporate partners as well as celebrate a century of guiding youth to a bright future.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado has a special place in the heart of Scott Reiman, who spent several years volunteering as a mentor through the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. He congratulates Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado on 100 years of guiding youth toward a bright future.

Construction has began on an $18 million expansion project at Discovery World in downtown Milwaukee.

The science and technology center’s 20,000 square foot expansion project is funded entirely by private donations. The largest donation is from the Reiman Foundation’s founders Roy and Bobbi Reiman.

The expansion includes a new pavilion that will be used year-round for special events along with converting one of the museum’s two theaters into a new entrance and exhibit gallery. There will also be a new Technology Wing with two new permanent exhibits highlighting public health, medical research, health care careers and more.

This additional space will allow more visitors including students and local schools to explore more hands-on exhibits and experiences geared towards the areas of science, technology, engineering and math.

Discovery World is also home to the Reiman Aquarium where visitors explore underwater worlds and creatures from the Great Lakes, the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea.

Support for non-profits like Discovery World is at the heart of the Reiman Foundation’s mission. The Foundation and its CEO Scott Reiman, continue to provide significant support to hundreds of non-profit, charitable and civic initiatives throughout Milwaukee, Denver and across the United States.

Denver Scholarship Foundation helps local entrepreneur

Mawukle Yebuah is an entrepreneur and he credits the support from the Denver Scholarship Foundation, with his success.

At the age of only 23, Yebuah is not only working towards finishing his master’s degree at the University of Denver, where he also went to undergrad, but he has also started a small business. And as one of the co-founders of Flare & Square, a company that designs and manufactures high-end men’s accessories, pocket square and bowties, Yebuah is marking his mark.

Mawukle and his family emigrated from Ghana when he was 6 years old. The family became U.S. citizens in 2010.

A graduate from South High School, Mawukle spent a majority of his senior year at the school’s Future Center where advisors walked him through the application and scholarship process. He says with the Foundation’s support, along with additional scholarships, provided enough financial aid that actually made DU, the most affordable.

Since its inception in 2006, the Denver Scholarship Foundation has awarded more than $33 million in scholarships to 56,000 students. As a founding board member, Scott Reiman supports its mission to make sure all students succeed and graduate.
