Big Brothers Big Sisters Partners with Girl Scouts

Concord - Girl Scouting is the preeminent leadership development organization for girls, but those in challenging situations or without a support system may find it difficult to participate. That’s why Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains have partnered with the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization, to provide more opportunities for girls facing adversity.

“Together all four Big Brother Big Sister agencies in New Hampshire are excited for the opportunity to partner with Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains. Working together further strengthens our Big Sister-Little Sister one-to-one mentoring relationships, inspiring girls to become even more confident and empowered community-minded citizens in the great State of New Hampshire,” said Joy Barrett, CEO of BBBS of Greater Nashua & Greater Salem.

“We are really excited that Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains and the Big Brothers Big Sisters New Hampshire Alliance has partnered this year and that we are working together to provide even more opportunities for girls in New Hampshire to discover, connect and take action,” said Katie Orlando, a manager of membership growth and community development for Girl Scouts.  “We hope that Little Sisters will explore the many pathways that are available in Girl Scouting—from troops to camp and travel to events—with their Big Sisters that we offer to girls in grades K-12,” Orlando said, adding, “We are inspired by the work Big Brothers Big Sisters does for girls facing adversity in New Hampshire.”

Next summer all Big and Little Sister matches will be invited to Girl Scout camp for a day where they can swim, explore nature, cook over a campfire and learn camp songs.

Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains serves more than 14,500 girls across New Hampshire and Vermont, thanks to 5,500 trained and dedicated volunteers. Girl Scouting is celebrating 100 years of building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.

Big Brothers Big Sisters believes that every child has the ability to succeed and thrive in life, and is dedicated to helping children in single- and low-income families, or households where a parent is incarcerated.
