Each year Camden Rotary provides a special grant to a youth-oriented program.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mid-Maine's 1-to-1 Mentoring Program received this year's grant, which Camden Rotary was happy to present to BBBS staffers Gwendolyn Hudson and Alex Gaeth. Funds will support volunteer mentors working with more than 100 local youth to succeed in life by supporting academic achievement, avoiding risky behaviors, and building self-confidence. Ninety-two percent of those served come from low income homes, single parent families, or are struggling academically and socially. This opportunity is provided at no cost to the families.
