The mission of Eastern Illinois University Big Brothers Big Sisters is to make a positive difference in the lives of the children of Coles County, and the surrounding area, through one-on-one relationships with caring University students. We are committed to assisting children in achieving their highest potential by becoming confident, competent, and caring individuals. Being an RSO member means that the students of EIU can become involved in our mission through mentoring, service, and social events put on by the RSO, its advisors, and Mid-Illinois Big Brothers Big Sisters. We hope that you will join us in making a difference by becoming part of something BIG!
