Lunch Buddies

What is Lunch Buddies?

Lunch Buddies is a mentoring session that allows “Matches”, a student (Mentee) to meet with an adult volunteer (Mentor), once a week during their assigned school lunch period. Matches will meet typically about 40-50 minutes, depending on your school’s lunch and recess times in an available room at your school. The Mentors will arrive to escort their Mentee to the cafeteria a few minutes before their class is dismissed for lunch. They will eat lunch together, and spend the time having good conversation while having games and activities available to them. Lunch Buddies will meet on a set day, weekly for the entire school year, excluding holidays.
