Big Brothers Big Sisters Partnership for Orange County

Big Brothers Big Sisters is the oldest, largest, and most effective youth mentoring organization in the United States. They have been the leader in one-to-one youth service for more than a century, developing positive relationships that have a direct and lasting impact on the lives of young people. Big Brothers Big Sisters mentors children, ages 6 through 18, in communities across the country - including yours.

As a way of saying "thank you" to the many Big Brothers Big Sisters employees, volunteers and their families who reside in our community, Marist College is offering special tuition pricing for individuals involved with the Orange County chapter.
