Interested potential mentors can join us for one of our Virtual Info Sessions at Those who complete a Virtual Info Session and schedule an interview, will receive a VIP invite to our Big Draft Celebration on April 30th.

For thirty-five years now, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Acadiana has been reaching out to the youth of our community, serving at-risk children from primarily single parent homes. We do this by matching volunteer adult role models in one-to-one mentoring relationships with these children. The “matches” spend time together a few times each month doing activities they both enjoy. This can range from anything like fishing – to baking brownies – to playing in the park. When a volunteer becomes a “Big,” he/she commits to a minimum of one year with their “Little;” however, many of our matches choose to continue for several years thereafter. The experience of the relationship shared between “Bigs” and “Littles” is often life-changing . . . for both the child and the volunteer.
