A local group of men is working together with hopes to help the next generation and to incite change.
The group is Men Coming Together for a Positive Change and is comprised of men from all over the community, including Chris Bernard of Lafayette.
Bernard says the group hopes to "bring about change with our youth within our community."
The group's first initiative is for each member to adopt 5 young men to mentor and "help stay on a cleran path."
Bernard says he hopes that, with the help of the boys' parents, he can help mentor them for everyday life.
To help Bernard and the organization, contact Bernard at 337-693-5353.
