About Us

Mañelu, formerly Big Brothers Big Sisters of Guam, is a local nonprofit that has been educating and empowering children and families to change their lives for the better for over 15 years.  Since 2002, Mañelu has been enriching the lives of hundreds of children throughout the island by providing excellence in one-to-one mentoring.  


Over the years we have expanded our programs and services to support the family as a whole through site based youth and family activities and the Micronesian Resource Center One-Stop Shop.


Our Mission


Empower and educate children and families facing adversity to change their lives for the better, forever.


Our Vision


A community in which families of diverse cultures thrive together to achieve success.
