Lunch Buddies is a mentoring initiative that provides a Houston School student with an on-going relationship with a caring adult. Adult volunteers commit to having lunch with a student on a weekly basis for at least a semester. After lunch, there is time to play games or just talk.
By focusing on mentoring, we believe that we work ahead of the problems these kids may face as they become teenagers and adults. Mentoring is a proven method of lowering school dropout rates, curbing youth suicide, and reducing homelessness.
