Bigs Brothers Big Sisters of the Midlands Start Bigs in Blue Program

Bigs in Blue is a one-to-one mentoring program that connects youth with law enforcement in the Omaha/Council Bluffs metro area, 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 our community and looking for your support.

Being a Big Brother, Big Sister or Big Couple is one of the most enjoyable things you’ll ever do. Not to mention, one of the most fulfilling. You have the opportunity to help shape a child’s future for the better by empowering them to achieve. And the best part is, it’s a lot of fun. You and your Little can share the kinds of activities you already like to do.  Play sports together. Go on a hike. Read books. Eat a pizza. Or just give some advice and inspiration. Whatever it is you enjoy, odds are you’ll enjoy them even more with your Little.

Our Bigs in Blue program is part of our core mentoring program: Community-Based Mentoring.
Spending time together out in the local community is primarily how Bigs and Littles develop their relationship. After all, to change a child’s perspective of the world, it helps to spend some time out in it.  Some Bigs meet their Littles on the weekends. Others get together with their Littles in the evenings. Each match is unique and develops a schedule that works for them. 

The volunteers in our Bigs in Blue program are not only officers, but can also be law enforcement department clerical or support staff. 

Volunteering just a few hours a month with a child can Start Something amazing. So why not apply to be a Big in our Bigs in Blue program today. There are kids out there ready to get started. Are you?
