Bigs With Badges is a national initiative of Big Brothers Big Sisters in which police officers, firefighters, and other first repsonders serve as mentors ("Bigs") for youth in their communities. Bigs With Badges helps to promote a sense of trust between first responders and the community, while also serving as a catalyst for positive youth mentoring and civic engagement.

Bigs With Badges matches can be community-based or site-based, depending on the needs and capacity of participating departments.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Butler County is proud to partner with police departments and fire departments in our community.
