The Buddy Program

Our Buddy Program pairs older children with young students to be a "Big Buddy" for the school year. Each week, Big Buddies join their Little Buddies in classroom activities or special learning projects, offering older students an opportunity to learn mentoring and model positive behavior. Little Buddies enjoy the attention and support from older students, and are especially thrilled with a "Hi" on the playground.
