Editor’s note: Bigs with Badges is a program of the Big Brothers, Big Sisters organization.

Every day, the men and women of CDCR give back to their communities. Captain Chance Andes is no exception. The California Medical Facility Captain spends his spare time volunteering for Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sacramento Area (BBBS), spending quality time with his “Little Brother,” Christian.

Inside CDCR followed Andes and Christian to Christian’s first baseball game, where they shared how spending time together through the Bigs with Badges program makes both their lives better.
