Island children are matched with caring adult mentors who share their interests. Mentors and mentees meet on several occasions each month to spend quality time together. They enjoy activities that range from throwing baseballs to baking cookies to doing science experiments to good old-fashioned hangin' out. In short, a mentor is a friend. Learn More >
Local high school students volunteer to share a healthy breakfast, talk, play games, help with homework, do crafts, and simply hang out with their elementary school buddies. Breakfast Buddies not only benefits the elementary schoolers by providing them with friends and role models, but proves equally beneficial to the high school mentors, who learn how to be responsible, reliable leaders.
