For more than 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. As the nation’s largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 6 through 18, in communities across the country. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.
Model United Nations (MUN) is designed to challenge local middle school students by simulating real world political interactions. Cardinal Gibbons students who participate in ChiefMUN, will organize a conference that will cover international events taking place throughout the atmosphere of the United Nations. Students will be challenged to collaborate with each other in order to produce creative, yet effective solutions to real world problems. Emphasis is stressed on speech, debate, and research, which will all be primary factors throughout the conference. It is a fun-filled day for the students to interact and role play. This will also give the students a nice head start should they want to participate in GatorMUN at Cardinal Gibbons, which is held at the University of Florida every year.
The Honor Council is a student-run peer jury group, which helps students navigate honor code and behavioral violations. The full council typically, but not always, consists of thirteen members. It handles major Honor Code violations with two goals in mind: to listen to each case brought before it and decide whether or not the Honor Code was actually violated.

The Cardinal Gibbons Photography Club encourages all members, regardless of skill level, to develop a deep appreciation and technical understanding of photography as a digital medium.
Members will gain knowledge of camera equipment and functions, as well as compositional aspects of placement and lighting, while providing documentation of Cardinal Gibbons events and functions.
The Save the Waves Club strives to save these beaches from pollution, along with the marine life that lives in them. Everyday, pollution worsens and endangers the lives of turtles and other animals in the South Florida ecosystem. Our own lives are in jeopardy if we continue to pollute beaches, increase global warming, and damage the earth we were given. By selling metal straws at school, encouraging recycling, and hosting a beach cleanup once a month, the Save the Waves Club will make a difference and improve the state of our Florida ecosystems, one straw at a time.
