Volunteer Opportunities

Lunch Buddy program

The Lunch Buddy Program is an excellent opportunity for adults from all walks of life to make a difference in the life of a child. The Lunch Buddy program works to match positive, consistent adult mentors to elementary aged youth in Grain Valley Schools to improve student peer relationships and strengthen positive connections to school.

A Lunch Buddy is someone to eat with, someone to talk to, someone to listen to, and someone a child can depend on to be there for them. A Lunch Buddy volunteer will meet with the child during the student’s lunch hour once every two weeks to help a child gain better relationships with their peers and feel better about their school community.

How can you help?
