Review from Guidestar

Big Brothers Big Sisters of La Plata County (and Archuleta County) matches adult mentors to children in need of one-on-one mentoring. Bigs and Littles spend aprox. 3 hours a week together doing fun activities. In Colorado, there is no end to the outdoor activities available. Bigs and Littles also spend time just "hanging out," doing things together that may seem routine. The important thing is the time spent, not the activity per se. Children grow and learn from their adult mentor, who guides, directs, instructs, listens, and laughs with them. The results are amazing! Children gain in self-esteem, begin to see new possibilities in life, enjoy learning new things, improve their grades, improve social skills...the list goes on and on. It is a wonderful way to give to a child who needs special love and care.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my work. I see the progress that is being made and the wonderful smiles of the kids when they talk about their Bigs.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Seeing children benefit from adult mentors. Adults finding satisfaction from being with a child and experiencing their wonder at new things.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Bring in more children and adults into the program through higher profile public relations, public education, and advertising. It could add to the support staff to help maintain these matches of Bigs and Littles. Offer more programs for their volunteers
