OKLAHOMA CITY-- Some shocking statistics are causing a group of Oklahomans to act. A study showed that there are over 27,000 children in Oklahoma who have at least one parent behind bars.

Also, over one-third of Oklahoma children live in a home with a single parent. Organizers say having a great adult role model can be a life-changing experience.

Now a successful mentoring program is looking for a few good men and women to step up and make a difference.
