People who are part of the Big Brothers Big Sisters program said it’s a commitment, but it’s also an opportunity to change a life.

"What sets Big Brothers Big Sisters apart is our matches are staying together on average over three years. Think about that. That same mentor in your life for over three years," said Jenny Harper, the president of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Dallas.

The organization said there’s a great need for men of color to volunteer.
