Looking for 60 Bigs for 60 Littles in 60 Days in Southern Maine
Have you ever thought of mentoring a little one in Maine?
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southern Maine (BBBSSM) launched their biggest and most ambitious campaign yet to try and recruit more mentors in Southern Maine, especially men. 60 Bigs in 60 Days will kick off 2023 by expanding their volunteer pipeline, moving Littles off the waiting list, and letting people know what Big Brothers Big Sister of Southern Maine is all about.
Three years later, Maine (and quite frankly the world) is still dealing with the significant impact COVID-19 has had on youth and families. Most of whom were already facing challenges. Plus, BBBSSM is trying to get more male role models and mentors involved! The waitlist of Little Brothers continues to grow. Currently, 45 children are waiting to be matched with a Big, 35 of which are boys.
