The organization is looking for men to step in and mentor more than 60 boys who are waiting to be matched with a Big Brother.

KATC’s Abby Breidenbach was LIVE this morning with more from Big Brothers Big Sisters of Acadiana and today’s orientation event.

The meeting starts at 5:30 p.m. and offers information to folks who would like to be a mentor. The orientation takes about an hour. Prospective mentors must be at least 18 years old and be able to spend at least four hours a month with their mentee.

The organization says that the mentorship program is an opportunity to help shape a child’s future by empowering them to achieve while sharing in the fun of activities like sports, hiking, reading books, or enjoying a pizza.
