PROGRAM

COMMUNITY-BASED MENTORING

BIGS AND LITTLES IN THE COMMUNITY-BASED PROGRAM GO ON ONE-TO-ONE OUTINGS AND ACTIVITIES, DOING THINGS THEY ENJOY TOGETHER, LIKE:

  • Attending a Dayton Dragons game or other sporting event
  • Taking a walk in the park
  • Going to the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery or another museum
  • Hanging out and talking
  • Listening to music

Some Bigs meet their Littles on the weekends or in the evenings. Each match is unique and develops a schedule that works for them.

ROLE MODELS MAKE AN IMPACT

Studies show that children who have role models are more likely to improve in school and in their relationships with family and friends, and less likely to skip school or use illegal drugs or alcohol. Students who are successful in school are less likely to drop out, abuse drugs, or commit crimes.


Our Impact

BIGS WITH BADGES

Bigs with Badges is a one-to-one mentoring program that connects youth with police in the Dayton community, 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.
