• Mentors come from all walks of life and all sectors of our community – exposing their mentees to new ideas, new experiences and new interests that get them involved in positive activities in their hometowns.


Mentoring, when done right, has been shown to give young people the tools to make responsible decisions and avoid risky behavior – making communities safer
through reduced juvenile crime.

Thank you to all of our amazing mentors!

We want to see BIG changes in the lives of children across the state of Alaska.

Supporting Relationships
Every day, we see and hear stories about how lives are being changed through a simple, professionally supported relationship between a child and a caring adult. 

Building Communities
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Alaska strengthens our communities by providing mentors to all children who need and want a caring adult role model – special friends who can help them expand their horizons, realize their potential and enrich their futures – changing their lives.

Providing Tools to Succeed
Bigs provide the additional guidance and support needed to keep a child on the right path toward promise and possibility. Mentoring is about prevention, and provides children with the tools to grow and succeed in a consistent, positive environment.

Simple Sharing
Being a Big Brother or Big Sister is simple. It’s sharing time, energy and friendship with a child in need. There is no special expertise required ~ and our volunteer mentors often times get back much more than they give!
