Changing perspectives. Changing lives.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mid-Maine changes the lives of over 500 youth facing adversity by providing meaningful, positive relationships that ignite their greatest potential. Our successful mentoring programs pair children, ages 5-14 (Littles), with caring, responsible role models (Bigs) in one-to-one friendships in seven counties throughout eastern, coastal and central Maine.
We partner with parents, in conjunction with over 30 schools and hundreds of volunteers and generous partners in our community to help children have higher aspirations, greater confidence, better relationships, avoid risky behaviors and achieve greater educational success.
