Mile High Magazine 1/30/2022 Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado

Guest:  Elycia R. Cook President& CEO Big Brothers and Big Sisters has been around for over 100 years.  They believe every child has unique potential, power and promise already in them but studies have shown that also every child needs one adult in their life who is not in their family who is investing in them and helping them to navigate life.  Big Brothers Big Sisters match mentors with littles (who can range in age from nine to adult) to build positive relationships.  They also have a sports program to help attract more men, the bigs and littles come together to and participate in an activity and then have one on one times.  They also have a school-based program that will help the teens with their post-secondary plan.  They are always looking for mentors but right now their greatest need is mentors that are males, people of color, non-binary, or bi-lingual.    https://www.biglittlecolorado.org/
