The Big Brothers Big Sisters Wants to "Start Something Epic"
Based in Miami, Jill Marten serves as the corporate director of human resources of Baptist Health South Florida. Aside from a career in human resources spanning more than two decades, Jill Marten actively participates in a number of community organizations, among them Big Brothers Big Sisters, a national youth mentoring program.
The country's largest mentoring program, Big Brothers Big Sisters helps at-risk youth build confidence in themselves and establish healthy relationships. Volunteer mentors are paired with youth from the program to develop a healthy rapport that leads to a meaningful friendship. Additionally, the organization offers several educational and public outreach programs.
One outreach program the organization currently runs is a partnership with Warner Bros.

Big Brothers Big Sisters has integrated scenes from the film in its television ads to encourage viewers to Start Something Epic. The goal of the Start Something Epic campaign is to inspire audiences to volunteer as a Big Brother or Big Sister mentor within the organization.
