Big Brothers Big Sisters of New Hampshire
Our top priorities are to increase revenue, recruit volunteer mentors and serve more New Hampshire youth in mentoring relationships. 2022 goals include growing our audience and awareness through partnerships with businesses and individuals to support match relationships. We currently have over 200 NH youth waiting for a mentor.
We will be launching a Mentor 2.0 Program for the first time in the Granite State, which matches high school-aged youth, with mentors in the business, trade and college community to build leadership and workforce development skills.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of New Hampshire participates in NH Gives. Our key fundraising events include The Stiletto Sprint in downtown Portsmouth, created in collaboration with our Young Philanthropists for Mentoring (YP4M) group, and our end-of-year Thankful Giving Campaign to honor our volunteer mentors and the mentors in your life. Every dollar raised goes to supporting a mentoring match.
BBBSNH matches children facing adversity throughout the state with caring, supportive mentors, and your support will make the difference. We rely on individual giving, recurring donations through our Impact Circle program and corporate partnerships.
We are looking for businesses that want to partner to offer mentoring as an option to promote a positive work culture and climate. We will work with you on finding the right fit program so more youth can be matched. Current partners include CCA Global Partners, Manchester; Exeter Hospital, Exeter; Northeast Delta Dental, Concord; and Physicians Resources LTD, Merrimack. Join the team!
Sign up to be a Big Brother or Big Sister. We recruit volunteer mentors (Bigs) to match with waiting youth across the state. The need for male mentors is especially high, as 75% of the children on our waiting list are boys. We ask for at least a year commitment as consistency is key, but matches often stay matched much longer. Mentors spend on average 4-6 hours a month with their match sharing the things they already enjoy doing like fishing, biking, hiking, playing a sport, cooking, etc. Our mentors say they get more out of the experience then they give.
