In as little as 30 minutes per week, you can make BIG changes in our community. As a Lunch Buddy you would make a one-year commitment to spend 30 minutes per week visiting your Little at his or her school during their lunch time. You would hang out with them one-on-one in the library, or another designated area, to play cards or just talk about their day.
Giving the gift of your time to mentor a child in our programs is an incredible investment to the future of our community. Our Littles often come from single-parent households, have parents who are incarcerated, or are in foster care. Simply showing up for them and offering one-on-one attention can make a huge difference in their lives.
The first step is coming to an info session to learn more about the program and our requirements.
