What parents are saying
I think this was a great program offered for my child.
I wish I was able to meet his G2 buddy earlier on in the year; it may have been offered but I wasn’t able to go. I liked how his G2 buddy had a log of notes from the times they met to look at since my child never seems to report what they did or discussed that day!

The children really seem to appreciate it; and for me all the smiles and hugs are a tonic.
Helps me to stay somewhat young(er).
I have the time and I like playing with the kids.
Very rewarding on many levels.
This is very rewarding for me. I love children and enjoyed my nieces and nephews when they were young. The children enrich my life and hopefully in some small way I help them.
I love being with young children.
To have the smiles and hugs.
The kids are so much fun to talk and play with and get to know. This is my sixth year and I always enjoy it.
I love getting to know the kids and seeing how their little minds work.
It’s 1 1/2 hours filled with fun, laughter, hugs, friendship, and love. It doesn’t get better than this!
I simply volunteer as a way of giving back, and children respond in ways that make it meaningful.
Enjoy the interaction with the kids.
I volunteer because I love little children and want to share and help them however I can. If they benefit from the time I give them, then this is why I do it.
Love the kids.
This is a wonderful project. I enjoyed the time each week with my G2 buddies.
I so appreciate the incredible acceptance and enthusiasm these kindergartners bring each week. It’s exciting to see them grow and develop over the course of the year! And Melissa rocks!!!
I feel this is a very important program for the children. It provides a time in their busy schedule to relax and play; plus building a relationship with an older (grandparent) adult.
