Eastern Illinois University has a Registered Student Organization that is comprised of college students who work with Big Brothers Big Sisters to provide services on the EIU campus. The mission of the EIU Big Brothers Big Sisters RSO is to make a difference in the lives of children in Coles County and in the surrounding area. They are committed to assisting children in achieving their highest potential by becoming confident, competent, and caring individuals.
What would I do as a member?
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. RSO membership does not require students to become Big Brothers or Big Sisters in the Mid-Illinois Big Brothers Big Sisters program; however it does require that students attend at least one event put on for the children per semester. We hope that you will join us in making a difference by becoming part of something BIG!
