Keeping Kids Connected During the Pandemic
WHERE WE STAND
From the beginning of the pandemic, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mid-Maine has followed the guidance of the CDC and the specific policies of each of our schools. We know how hard everyone works to keep our students safe and healthy. With that in mind, as masking guidelines are updated, Big Brothers Big Sisters will follow school guidelines.
First, vaccinations are still mandatory for volunteers in all group mentoring (school based) programs. Vaccinations are not required of Community-Based volunteers, but may hinder match meetings based on the Little's family preferences.
When masking is optional at school/school activities - masking will be optional at BBBS of Mid-Maine programming.
When masking is mandated at school/school activities - masking will be mandated at BBBS of Mid-Maine programming.
Our agency’s commitment to the youth and families we serve remains the same: to collaborate with families, schools and volunteers and continue to support the important relationships that exist between Bigs and Littles. One thing remains clear: our Little Brothers and Sisters continue to need us now as much as ever.
Thank you to our volunteers for continuing the important and safe work of one-to-one youth mentoring! #BiggerTogether
