(for volunteers of all genders in grades 9-12; participating schools only)
High school students will be matched one-to-one with an elementary student in a nearby school. You’ll spend one hour a week with your Little Buddy on school grounds – play board games, sports, or just hang out.
It’s a great way to gain new skills and more importantly, an awesome way to have fun!
With a Little Buddy you get to play games, sports and try cool activities at their elementary school. This is open to students in grades 9 – 12 and allows a young child to build a friendship with a caring student in their neighboring high school. Do tons of fun activities and games together including painting, dodgeball, soccer and making ice cream cones!
