Camden — Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mid-Maine has hired Rebecca Neville and Ted Fournier as program managers to coordinate and professionally support one-to-one youth mentoring programs in the Midcoast and Penobscot County.

Neville will serve as community-based manager for Penobscot, Knox, Waldo and Lincoln counties. In her new role, she is responsible for recruiting, training and supporting adult volunteers (Bigs) who serve as mentors for local youth facing adversity (Littles). Community-based mentoring matches a trusted, caring and screened adult with a child in their community to share interests and activities for two to five hours every week.

Neville brings to the agency experience working in a variety of educational settings, including serving as student activities coordinator at Unity College and as administrative coordinator at Brandeis University in Waltham, Mass. She completed undergraduate and graduate studies in French, higher education administration and acupuncture.

Fournier joins the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mid-Maine team as school-based manager for Penobscot and Waldo counties. In this position, Fournier will oversee the school- and site-based mentoring programs at Bangor Boys & Girls Club and Bangor YMCA with student mentors from Husson University; at Leonard Middle School, Lewis Libby School, Old Town Elementary School, Old Town Rec Center and Old Town YMCA with University of Maine Black Bear Mentors; and at Smith School  and Wagner Middle School in Winterport with Hampden Academy mentors.

Fournier comes to the agency as a career public educator with more than two decades of experience, including 15 years of post-secondary community college and university teaching and 15 years of education administration in college curriculum coordination, federal grant management and database administration.
