Breakfast Buddies

Breakfast Buddies is a school-based mentoring program for students in first through fifth grade. This program is designed to pair up youth with an adult “buddy” to provide a mentor and friend. The program is currently offered at Gordon Barbour Elementary, Orange Elementary, Unionville Elementary, and Locust Grove Primary Schools.


Volunteers are the heart and soul of this program and are asked to commit one (1) morning a week, more if available, to meet with their buddy. The times are during the elementary school breakfast from 8:00 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. (Later for Locust Grove Primary) If you are interested in being a “buddy” to one (1) of our youth, call the Office on Youth or complete the Volunteer Application and return it to the OOY.


**In 2004, the Breakfast Buddies program received the National Association of Counties – Acts of Caring Award. It was selected as being one of the top three (3) volunteer programs in the nation that serves children.
