Become a Big

Start Something for a Child!

Are you ready to volunteer with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mid-Maine and Change the Life of a Child?

For just a few hours a week, you can give a Little the invaluable gift of friendship and help change their life. It’s as simple as hanging out, doing things that you already love to do. The interview process for both Bigs and Littles gathers important information about your siimilar interests so that we can successfully match you with a Little who likes to do the same things you do!

The process starts here with our simple online application.  Shortly after you apply, a member of our Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mid-Maine team will contact you to discuss the next steps:

Completing a paper application

Participating in an in-person interview

Providing references

Participating in a background check
