About Us

Changing perspectives. Changing lives.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mid-Maine changes the lives of over 700 youth facing adversity by providing 1-to-1 relationships that change lives. Our successful mentoring programs pair children, ages 5-14 (Littles), with caring, responsible adult role models (Bigs) in one-to-one relationships 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.


The mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mid-Maine is to provide children in Androscoggin, Kennebec, Knox, Lincoln, Penobscot, Somerset and Waldo Counties facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported 1-to-1 relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.


Our vision is that all children achieve success in life.


By partnering with parents/guardians, volunteers, and others in the community we are accountable for each child in our program achieving:

• Higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships

• Avoidance of risky behaviors

• Educational success
