A push for mentors is, so far, falling short.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Grand Island is hoping to get 30 "bigs" in 30 days.
Eleven days into the drive only two new mentors have volunteered.
Staff of the non-profit took to the Conestoga Mall to try to recruit more bigs Saturday.
They said the program helps build confidence and trust in the kids involved.
"We currently have a waiting list right now of about 50 littles. These are children in the community that are really looking for somebody to mentor them. We need both male and female bigs. We just really need somebody to help out with their community and help the kiddoes we already have," said Holli Yager, community based program coordinator for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Grand Island.
Yager said it's simple to volunteer. You'll just need to fill out some paperwork and have an interview and background check.
The group hopes to have those 30 new bigs by the end of January.
January is National Mentoring Month.
