Bigs with Badges connects youth with mentors who work in law enforcement. These police officers and firefighters work to build strong, trusting relationships with their youth. The officer meets the youth at their school during their lunch hour or out in the community and the pair spends time doing activities that interest both such as board games, sports, playing games, or going for a walk.
Being a Big is all about sharing enjoyable experiences with a child in need. It doesn’t take a lot of time or money or any special skills. All you need is a willingness to be a friend to a child who needs a positive role model. Bigs consistently tell us that they “get back more than they give,” and having a Big changes a child’s life for the better, forever! Click here to read more about becoming a Big.
