How it works

Educators identify young people who can benefit most from interaction with a caring adult. As their friendships evolve, volunteers and children discover ways to make school and learning fun.

words from a volunteer

“It has kept me from sitting at home. As I get older I find that I need to be around younger people, especially a child who needs me!”
