Connecting Youth and Police Through Mentoring 

What is Bigs in BlueSM?

Bigs in BlueSM is a one-to-one mentoring program that connects youth with police in communities throughout our nation, building strong, trusting, lasting relationships. These relationships can help build stronger bonds between law enforcement and the families they serve. We are pleased to roll out this initiative across the nation and looking for your support.

What Police Chiefs are Saying

Having Big Brothers Big Sisters develop a partnership between law enforcement and our youth, through the Bigs in Blue program, will help break down barriers, build mutual understanding, and foster lasting relationships.
