Community Based Program:
This program serves children ages 6-14. We ask volunteers for a minimum one-year commitment to spend at least four hours with their Littles two to four times a month. Big Brothers are matched with Little Brothers, and Big Sisters are matched with Little Sisters. Activities may include things like going to the park, walking the dog, going fishing, making arts and crafts, or cooking; activities that both the Big and Little enjoy!

S.T.A.R.S. School Based Program:
The S.T.A.R.S. program is a partnership with local schools, for children in grades K-8, where volunteers commit to meeting with a child only at school for one hour once a week during the school year. Volunteers are matched with Littles who have been referred by their teacher or parent, who may need a little extra help with reading or another academic or social area. We have matches in Alamogordo and Cloudcroft schools.
