Want to Start a Sibshop?

Since 1990, we’ve helped hundreds of agencies start a Sibshop for the young brothers and sisters in their communities. Below is a summary of the steps to starting a Sibshop:

1. Learn more about the Sibshop model.  A good place to start is by reading the Frequently Asked Questions about Sibshops and the University of Washington Study on the Impact of Sibshops.  If you wish to dig deeper, the official Sibshop curriculum is available here.

2. Read the Sibshop Standards of Practice.  The Sibshop Standards of Practice describe the expectations we have of sibling programs that call themselves “Sibshops.”

3. Contact the Sibling Support Project.  , or even better call us at 425-362-6421 and we can discuss your interests and possibilities for your Sibshop. 

4. Attend a Sibshop facilitator training.  The only way to become a first-generation Sibshop facilitator is to attend a two-day Sibshop training.

5. Register your Sibshop.  After you’ve attended a Sibshop facilitator training, you’ll complete a no-cost Sibshop registration.

The only way to become a first-generation Sibshop facilitator is to attend a two-day Sibshop training.

Even if you don't want to  become a Sibshop facilitator, you can join us for the first day for a lively and rewarding discussion of sibs' issues across the lifespan. 

Please know:
Registration costs are determined by the agencies hosting the workshops and trainings.  For information and to register, please contact these agencies directly. 

Below you'll find dates for upcoming Sibshop facilitator trainings and other sibling workshops.  If you'd like to discuss hosting a training in your community, please drop us a line at
