Challenge

The Lunch Buddy program focuses on helping children who have low self esteem, struggle with friendships, lack social skills, are having trouble in school and/or come from a distressed family.

Solution

Lunch Buddies provide friendship, support and positive role modeling for children in order to enhance self-esteem, promote resiliency and a healthy lifestyle.

Long-Term Impact

Young children who have had a mentor are shown to do better in school, have more positive attitudes and are less likely to use drugs or alcohol or engage in violence. We currently serve between 65-85 elementary school aged children in the North Clackamas School District every school year. There are children on waiting lists at every school.
