The Office of Justice Programs has posted a new blog discussing the Bigs in Blue national mentoring program that matches youth with police in their community. Bigs in Blue, a program of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, has matched 1,090 police officers or "bigs" with children or "littles" who come largely from poor or single-parent homes or have an incarcerated parent. The blog highlights successful mentoring relationships. The blog also details OJJDP's investment in mentoring, including the more than $83 million awarded last year to mentoring organizations.
