The volunteer meets with his/her "Little" on a regular basis, either in the community based or school based program, for a minimum of 4 hours per month. Match commitments are one calendar year for the community based program and school based program. Match commitments can be renewed and all "matches" are monitored and supported by agency case managers. Currently, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Acadiana serves a 6 parish region of Acadiana including Iberia, Acadia, St. Landry, St. Martin, Lafayette and Evangeline parishes.

Description

You don't have to change YOUR life to change THEIRS. Volunteers are carefully and professionally matched with children who will be interested in the same kinds of activities.
