Welcome to Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Capital Region

Our mission: Create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.
Our vision: All youth achieve their full potential.

By partnering with parents/guardians, volunteers and others in the community we are accountable for each child in our program achieving higher aspirations, greater confidence, educational success, and better relationships while avoiding risk-taking behaviors.


For National Mentoring Month, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Capital Region welcomed a guest panel of Alpha Phi Alpha members to Tuesday’s Youth Rise: Stand Together program session. The Youth Rise: Stand Together program participants are 8th grade students from Susquehanna Township and their mentors, who are volunteers from various local companies.

Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., the first intercollegiate Greek letter fraternity established by African American Men in 1906 at Cornell University, is a Big Brothers Big Sisters local and national partner.
