Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado – Pikes PeakDonate Now
Big Brothers Big Sisters provides children facing adversity with strong, enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships. Community volunteers are paired with youth to be a Big Brother or Sister — and through simply giving the invaluable gift of friendship, these match relationships change lives for the better, forever.
BBBS is effective because of our awesome community of volunteers. We are uniquely positioned to impact the lives of kids through finding them a role model and friend to help them navigate life and reach their full potential. One-to-one mentorship creates transformative effects across the lives of the children served, along with their families, the mentor, the Colorado Springs community, and future generations.
Our biggest need is more volunteers as we pair one “Big” to each “Little.” We also need in-kind support for our mentor2.0 program events (meals and volunteers to facilitate events).

“My mentor is great about being positive and bringing that out in my own life. I am more courageous when it comes to building my social capital and meeting new people. She has helped me learn more about who I am and who I want to become.” —Deisy, mentee in mentor2.0 program
