The need for male role models has never been higher. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana helps connect children in need with a mentor to help guide and teach them when they need it most. In Johnson County, 87% of the kids waiting to be paired with a 'Big' are boys, and many wait an average of around two years to be matched with a mentor. Something had to be done to fill the void. 'The wait times in Johnson County are approximately double what they are in other counties we serve,' said Charles Stringer, volunteer outreach and engagement coordinator for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana.
