There’s a growing list of kids in the Twin Cities waiting for mentors in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program.

Organization leaders say there aren’t any special qualifications to begin, and volunteers may end up learning just as much as the kids do.

“I never thought one of my best friends would be this 15-year-old little,” said Pat Sukhum, CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters Twin Cities. “I hear it from all bigs, ‘I feel like I got more out of it than my little does.’”

The organization says there are over 300 kids waiting for matches.
