I received my first record player when I was 2-years-old and knew right then that music would be a big part of my life. My mom would turn on the radio every morning before she'd put on the coffee. Today, with all my blessings including 2 wonderful children and a successful morning show, I still wake up each morning to hear the music. Radio is the only job I ever wanted, never has anything else ever crossed my mind. In February of 2016 my daughter was diagnosed with leukemia. She is now in remission but the battle continues. Her strength and attitude motivate me everyday of my life. She is our family's hero.

BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS OF ACADIANA!
Our Vision: That all children achieve success in life
Our Mission: Our mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported 1-to-1 relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
Accountability Statement: We partner with parents/guardians, volunteers and others in the community and hold ourselves accountable for each child in our program achieving:
• Higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships
• Avoidance of risky behaviors
• Educational success We are always in need of more volunteers to donate their time by becoming a Big Brother or Big Sister in our program. Our need for male volunteers is especially great due to the almost 60 boys in our program waiting to be matched with a Big Brother. Volunteers will commit to being a Big Brother or BigSister for at least 12 months in either our Community-Based Program or our Site-Based program.
If catching a ball game, spending a day in the park, watching a movie or just hanging out sharing laughs sounds fun, this program is for you. You’ll get to act like a kid again and both your lives will be forever changed by the experience. Volunteers will pick up their Little at least twice a month from the home to spend time together.
For Bigs able to break away from the office for lunch or who enjoy a set schedule for meeting their Little, this opportunity matches you with a Little in a local school. All it takes is visiting your Little once a week at a school to have lunch, play computer games, read books or just talk.
