Volunteer to Start Something
What if every child finished high school, went to college or university, got a job and gave back to our community? Wouldn't that be something?

Bowl For Kids Sake
After hosting what we thought would be our last Bowl for Kids Sake fundraiser last spring just before the bowling alley closed its doors, we are happy to announce that Mad Trappers Alley has reopened and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Yukon can once again host our annual fundraiser!

We are extremely excited to be able to continue hosting this annual event and to celebrate 25 years of Bowl for Kids Sake with the community on Sunday April 24, 2016. Please contact us to register a team today!

This program is for children and youth on our wait-list or who are new to our programs. Each session will bring volunteers and kids together for a night of activities such as movie nights, rec nights, craft nights and much more!

A snowy summer BBQ! 

Our annual Bigs and Littles summer BBQ had an unexpected visitor: snow! But our Bigs and Littles are tough and went paddling down the Yukon River anyway. Special thanks to Up North adventures for keeping 16 Bigs and Littles as happy, warm and dry as they could be on such a chilly August day!

Our last Annual Bowl for Kids Sake event took place on April 26, 2014. We would like to thank all the businesses, friends and family that have supported this event over the past 24 years! Our deepest gratitude also goes to Stephen and Irene Kwok who are major sponsor of the event year after year.  Thanks to you we raised over $24,000 for Yukon children and youth!

 

Witnessing the transformation of a child into a confident young person is a remarkable thing.
