Camden — Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mid-Maine, which provides one-to-one youth mentoring services to six Maine counties, recently moved its main office from Rockland to Camden.

The agency, which serves more than 530 Maine children in Kennebec, Knox, Lincoln, Penobscot, Somerset and Waldo counties, has operated in the Midcoast for more than 36 years.

The new Camden office is located at 48 Washington St. The office is located at the back of the building with its main entrance adjacent to the parking lot where the Camden Farmers Market is held.

In addition to the Camden location, the agency also has three satellite offices  in Bangor, Waterville and Damariscotta.

“We are excited to be part of the Camden community,” said Alex Gaeth, CEO, in a news release. “We have School-Based Mentoring programs locally at Camden-Rockport Elementary, Lincolnville Central School, Appleton Village School, Hope Elementary, and at South School in Rockland.

We also have many volunteer opportunities for members of the community who are interested in helping youth,” he said. “These include general office work, serving as a School Coordinator, helping with special events, data entry, and of course, being a mentor and special friend to a local child.”
