For a few hours, a couple times a month, you can give a Little the invaluable gift of your friendship. By simply changing their perspective of what the world can offer, you can literally start changing their lives.
Sometimes the best place for enjoying activities together is at the child’s school. And, the best part is, it can be a great learning experience, in or out of the classroom.
Lunch Buddies: In the Lunch Buddies program, Bigs visit their elementary aged Little at their school at least twice a month. They can eat, talk, work on homework, play a game, or do a special project. It's up to them to decide!
School Buddies: Middle School is an essential time for youth to focus on academics, attendance, and extracurricular activities. The School Buddies program allows Bigs and Littles to learn more about these areas, review grades and school absences, and do fun activities. This program takes place at the child's school every other week at a set time and date.
