Bigs with Badges
Bigs with Badges is an initiative partnering law enforcement and emergency services personnel volunteer once a week to mentor a child in a nearby elementary school.
We are honored to have current volunteers from:
Davidson County Sheriff’s Office
Metropolitan Nashville Police Dept.
Metropolitan Nashville Fire Dept.
Tennessee Bureau of Investigation
Tennessee Department of Correction
You’ll feel the impact as much as your child.
A study for Big Brothers Big Sisters found that kids matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister:
- Are more confident
- Are more likely to steer clear of drugs and alcohol
- Do better in school
- Get along better with their family and friends
- Feel better about themselves
"Volunteering as a Big Brother is definitely the highlight of my week!"
