The Buddy Program Charity Profile
The Buddy Program connects mentors and youth to enrich their lives; and provides support services for both the youth and their families.
Since 1973 The Buddy Program has been pairing screened and trained adult volunteer mentors with young people, ages 6-18, from Aspen to El Jebel, Colorado. Children are paired with an adult Big Buddy in either the Community program, School-based program, or with a high school student in the Peer-to-Peer program.
Children are referred by teachers, counselors, parents, social services case workers or they simply refer themselves. Over the course of a year, pairs spend time together by participating in a variety of activities. During these get togethers, Buddies talk, share common interests while developing new ones, and share their life experiences, all while having a great time together!
