Since 1977, Seacoast Big Brothers Big Sisters has served young people between the ages of 6 and 17 who need an older role model in their lives. One-to-one mentoring is proven to be the single most effective program serving youth today. Our program has focused on providing that mentor in the life of a deserving Seacoast youth for 25 years.
Big Brothers Big Sisters recruits and trains the volunteer mentors. Once they are matched with a “Little” brother or sister, our professional staff provides ongoing support for the relationship. The agency serves young people from many towns throughout Rockingham and Strafford Counties.
The need for our services continues to expand. Big Brothers Big Sisters of America estimates that there are approximately 74,000 youth in our service area. They further estimate that some 14,000 of these can be classified as being “at-risk”. Our goal nationally is to serve 10% of this “at-risk” population by 2010.
We currently serve around 300 matches locally. Our goal for serving young people approaches over 1,000 by the end of the decade.
