Mission Statement

LINKS Lunch Buddy Mentors provide social-emotional support to students who need a little extra one-on-one attention. Studies have shown that children with mentors are more likely to succeed. The LINKS program has developed three goals that closely align to LWSD’s values: 1) Students will feel connected. 2) Students will feel valued. 3) Students will be engaged in the school community.

Description

LINKS Lunch Buddy Program is an in-school mentoring program that serves students in the Lake Washington School District elementary schools.

The Lunch Buddy Program brings students together with caring adults. Mentors come during school hours once a week and spend the lunch hour in a pre-assigned area to eat, play games, make crafts, talk and do other agreed-upon activities. Mentors provide support to students who need a little extra one-on-one attention.

LINKS Lunch Buddy mentors help students feel engaged, supported and challenged which can improve students' confidence and help students acquire the skills needed for lifelong success, in school and beyond. Studies have shown that children with mentors are more likely to succeed.

We provide training, support and community connection.

Mentors needed in elementary schools in:

  • Kirkland
  • Redmond
  • Sammamish

If you could make a difference in the life of a child by giving 1 hour a week, would you do it?
