Our mentoring relationships were made for this moment. Mentors can help their Littles understand what is going on, support what is likely their first remote school experience, and give them a safe space to share whatever they may be feeling in this unprecedented time. It is critical that everyone stays informed about the coronavirus COVID-19 and what you can do to protect yourself and your family.
Your financial support helps us provide one-to-one mentors to children in our community who need it the most! Your donation helps us develop more college grads, community leaders, and entrepreneurs. It is not just a donation, but an investment in igniting the potential of Utah youth.
Change a child’s life every single month. By making a monthly gift, you will help introduce a waiting Little to their Big each and every month. Your monthly donation is incredibly valuable to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah, as we are able to better plan for match making – continuously giving parents and children on our waitlist the news that we’ve found a match.

- Advertise our programs through any newsletters, bulletin boards, or other intra-office communications
- Provide paid volunteer hours that employees can utilize to be a mentor in one of our programs.
- Allow employees to mentor during the work day at your own office. We currently work with Comcast, Discover, and Goldman Sachs for
our Workplace Mentoring program. Contact [email protected] to learn what it takes
to become a partner for this program.
Set Up a Clothing Drive
Support Big Brothers Big Sisters by having a clothing drive at your company. Your employees solicit bags of clothing and small household items for donation, then we schedule a day/week to pick up the donated goods. You can also place a barrel in your office for longer-term collection. Then we sell the goods to Savers thrift store and get a check based on the pounds of goods collected. Learn more here.
