The Buddy Program – – Become a Big Buddy and Make a Big Impact!
You have a meaningful opportunity in front of you – to not only guide and inspire a youth today, but to transform their potential for tomorrow. And, your impact can directly strengthen our community. By giving a couple of hours, 3 to 4 times a month, you can give your Little Buddy the invaluable gift of friendship. As a friend, you can provide guidance and opportunities for your Little Buddy to learn and grown. By showing up, listening, and having fun, you can help change a young person’s perspective for the better. Little Buddies are 6 – 18 years of age who are referred by teachers, counselors, or parents and are in need of companionship and encouragement. Big Buddies are responsible, caring individuals who act as a positive role model and advocate for their Little Buddy. Volunteer requirements include full-time, year round residents who are capable of committing to consistent contact with their mentee for a minimum of 1 year. The Buddy Program is especially looking for male mentors to work with children in the midvalley.
Two ways to get involved:
Visit www.buddyprogram.org to fill out a volunteer inquiry form and volunteer with an award-winning mentoring organization. Watch this short video to get inspired: http://youtu.be/5kI8KL5_Gok
