Camden — Big Brothers Big Sisters of America’s Nationwide Leadership Council has recognized Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mid-Maine with a 2017 Big Brothers Big Sisters of America Quality Award. The award recognizes team leadership and quality community programming. BBBSMM is one of only 28 agencies, among 300 nationally, to receive this recognition.

Last year, BBBSMM served 739 youth by connecting them with volunteers  and professionally supporting those one-to-one mentoring relationships. The quality award recognizes excellence in community, school and site-based mentoring programming. Agencies receiving this distinction met or exceeded goals in number of youth served, retention of matches and continuous financial sustainability. BBBSMM is in its 39th year of serving children facing adversity in Midcoast, Eastern and Central Maine.

The agency will be recognized in June at the 2018 Big Brothers Big Sisters National Conference in St. Louis, Mo.
