Bigs in Blue: CONNECTING YOUTH & LAW ENFORCEMENT THROUGH MENTORING

Support the Program ▸

What We Do

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Los Angeles matches adult volunteers (Bigs) with kids (Littles) facing adversity to provide professionally supported one-to-one mentoring relationships that have a measurable and transformative impact on the lives of our youth, our mentors and our community.

WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BE A MENTOR?

Being a mentor is about starting a consistent friendship and inspiring positive change to empower children to believe they can achieve what they didn't think was possible. You can simply incorporate your Little into your everyday life: play sports together, picnic in the park, take your dog for a hike or go to the beach. Being a Big will be one of the most enjoyable and fulfilling things you do, while also being a force of change in our community.

How Do Bigs And Littles Get Matched?

Common Interests

We spend time getting to know Bigs and Littles to make a good match and lasting friendship. Do you both like sports, music or surfing? We look for things you have in common so you will always have fun together.

How Do I Become A Mentor?

Community

Once matched with your Little, our involvement in your relationship is just getting started. We're always on hand to provide support every step of the way. You'll also be connected to our community of Bigs through a private Facebook group, agency-planned match events, and outings with other Bigs.

"The best thing about Joey is when out of the blue he'll put his arms around me and say 'Thank You' during an outing or 'I'm glad I have a big bro' or the time he whispered in my ear at dinner 'When I have a girlfriend will you help me with it?’ I love his openness, honesty, and willingness to share." #LittleMomentsBigImpact #TBT #ThrowbackThursday

We have boys who are waiting for a Big Brother!

“Loc is intelligent and hard working. He will make a great leader some day!” #NewMatchMonday

A mentor sees the potential we don't yet see in ourselves. We are looking for men to be a positive force in the life of one of the boys on our waiting list.

"This one time I saw him peeping through the fence, waiting for me as my car drove by, and then he said ‘I love you’ as I was leaving. That just changed my life." #LittleMomentsBigImpact #FallbackFriday Jovan Carrington
