Bigs in Blue
Connecting Youth and Police Through Mentoring
Bigs in Blue is a one-to-one mentoring program that connects youth with police in our communities, building strong, trusting, lasting relationships. These relationships can help children develop into confident adults and help build stronger bonds between law enforcement and the families they serve. We rolled out this initiative during the fall of 2018 in partnership with the Worcester Police Department. In 2018, we matched 10 police officers from the department to serve as Bigs for children in the area.
In the fall of 2019, we expanded the program to our Metrowest region by partnering with the Framingham Police Department. In our efforts to expand the program, we are collaborating with additional towns in our service area to further connect youth and police through mentoring.
We would like to offer our sincerest thanks to the Worcester Police Department for working with us to make the vision of Bigs in Blue a reality!
