About

Sports Buddies


Big Brothers Big Sisters - Pikes Peak
El Paso County, Colorado

Sports Buddies is one of Big Brothers Big Sisters' core youth mentoring programs. Activities are designed to deepen mentoring relationships while supporting self-confidence, goal setting, collaboration, skill development, and healthy lifestyles.

Activities last an average of 2 to 4 hours, and range from spectator sports to participatory activities. During each activity, Big Brothers Big Sisters' staff observe and supervise the matches to monitor and support the development of each relationship.

Sports Buddies provides mentoring for children facing adversity. The mentoring relationship will impact the youth by helping them to:

Improve their sense of themselves and sense of future
Form positive relationships with peers and family
Avoid risky or delinquent behavior
Achieve educational success

Volunteers commit to a minimum of 6 months, spending time with the same child a couple times a month.
