Now more than ever it's so important for our kids to have mentors to look up to, and for the past forty years, one organization has been making sure that happens.

Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Southwestern Indiana matches 'Bigs' with 'Littles' for one-to-one mentoring. This includes treating the kids to regular outings, so they can have fun while bonding with their mentor.

Bigs with Badges


Big Brothers and Big Sisters also has a program called “Bigs with Badges” that will match kids, or “Littles,” up with “Bigs” in law enforcement and other first responding departments.  Volunteer mentors will visit the child in uniform at the child’s school once a week for 30 minutes.

This is a mutually beneficial program. Not only can get an opportunity to be a positive influence in a child's life, but they can help promote trust in law enforcement and safety officers in general. 91% of volunteers agreed their Little has made improvements since they started meeting.
