Buddy Benches

We are purchasing and installing “Buddy Benches” in local school yards. These benches are a nonverbal bridge to friendship for young people who are developing socially and may not have the words to say they need a friend. All the kids know that if you sit on the bench you are in need of a buddy and can reach out to connect.

The school staff, children and their families are impacted by these programs and the response from children in the community has been compelling.
