Want to make a difference in a child's life?
For just one lunch a week, you can be a lunch buddy for a Woodland student!
A lunch buddy is an adult mentor who meets with their student once a week during a 40-minute lunch/recess period to listen, support, play, and practice social emotional learning skills through fun and engaging activities.
It’s not hard to be a lunch buddy – just be a champion and cheerleader for your student!
Research shows that students who meet regularly with their mentors...
- are less likely to start using illegal drugs than their peers
- are less likely to drink alcohol
- are less likely to engage in violence
- have fewer trips to the principal's office
- have better attendance
Lunch buddies must be 18 or older and available once a week during the assigned lunch time. Interested community members can reach out to:
