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.
