Big Brothers Big Sisters Agencies Meet In Denver For ReuniteNow National Conference, Sponsored By Comcast And NBCUniversal

DENVER, June 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Big Brothers Big Sisters, the nation's largest network of youth mentoring agencies, will convene at The Marriott City Center in Denver June 23-26, 2013 for its ReuniteNow National Conference.  Along with celebrity ambassadors, corporate funders and top youth advocates, agency leaders and alumni "Bigs" and "Littles" will share effective strategies for strengthening outcomes and reaching the children who most benefit from long-term one-to-one mentoring.


Over the course of four days, youth mentoring experts will share successful strategies for improving educational and socio-emotional outcomes for children who face adversity. The conference will focus on best practices to provide the network's 340 local agencies the support they need to conquer challenges facing youth and families in communities across the country.

The mentoring network will also celebrate its national Big Brother of the Year and Big Sister of the Year.  Comcast and NBCUniversal will present the honorees at 7:30 p.m., June 24, at the Seawell Grand Ballroom. (*To view a full a schedule of the conference please visit the link at the end of this document.) 

Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock will join Big Brothers Big Sisters of America President and CEO Charles Pierson, and other mentoring and youth services leaders to welcome guests at the opening ceremony. Big Brothers Big Sisters celebrity ambassadors, including two-time Super Bowl Champion Darrin Smith; 2012 Miss America Laura Kaeppeler; and former Big Sister, NBC News' Kate Snow, are a few of the highlighted personalities who will present during the conference.

Strategically, the organization is committed to expanding its services to reach more children - remaining relevant and being "of" the communities it serves and re-engaging its network of more than one million alumni Bigs, Littles, staff and board members, and their friends and families. Youth enrolled in Big Brothers Big Sisters face a variety of significant challenges, for example: growing up in single-parent homes, poverty, households where a parent is incarcerated, or military families.
