This mentoring program matches adults from the community with elementary school students. Lunch Buddies are matched with one student and spend an hour each week helping them with homework, playing at recess and, more importantly, being a friend.
Buddies are men and women who are at least 18 years old and who have demonstrated, by way of a complete background check, personal references, and an in-depth interview, that they can be effective site-based mentors.
Become a Lunch Buddy!
Call us today at #248-2229. Our enrollment specialist will conduct an interview, further explain the program, and then match you with a Little at the child’s school. Buddies must be responsible, reliable and demonstrate effective communication skills and sound judgment.
By becoming a Lunch Buddy, you will form a friendship with a child and provide them with a positive role model. The impact on a Little is huge. Research has shown that students often improve in the areas of self-confidence, school performance, family relations, peer relations, ability to express feelings, respect for other cultures, and the ability to avoid delinquency. Become a Lunch Buddy and start making a difference in the life of a child!
