Big Brothers Big Sisters

Mission
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Alaska connects youth experiencing adversity with caring adult mentors. Youth in our program are more confident, safe, and engaged at school. Together, we empower children to realize their potential and we defend that potential. We partner with parents/guardians, volunteers (Bigs), and the community to hold ourselves accountable for each child (Little) in our program achieving higher aspirations, greater confidence, better relationships, avoidance of risky behaviors, and educational success.
Core Programs
In each of our programs below, matches meet and participate in fun activities together, building a trusting mentoring relationship.
Community-Based Mentoring: Adult mentors are matched with youth ages 6-18 with a commitment to meet 2-4 times/month for at least one year.
Site-Based Mentoring: Adult or high-school mentors meet at schools once/week during lunch or recess for at least one school year.
Initiatives
Alaska Native Mentoring: Designed to encourage and recruit Alaska Native Bigs and Littles.
Sync: Designed to match youth ages 14-21 in or aging out of foster care with a supportive and caring adult mentor.
Getting Involved
When we make the “match” with the Big and Little, we consider location, personalities, and preferences and then we provide full support throughout the life of the match so they can grow into lasting relationships.
Interested in being a Big? We’re always looking for community members to become Bigs (volunteer mentors). All of our Bigs go through an enrollment process where they complete an application, attend an in-person interview, and receive background check and reference check screening.
Interested in enrolling your child? To enroll as a Little (child) in our program, we do an application and an in-person interview.
Interested in investing in potential? We also partner with community members and organizations to provide activities for our matches and we rely on the support of our community to continue to make matches and support them. If you are interested in being a proud supporter of your local Big Brothers Big Sisters, we would love to hear from you!
