What We Do

Buddy/Mentor, Inc began in the fall of 1994 with eight adult mentors working with eight students that Kim Bohannon taught at Barnum Elementary school in the Bridgeport, CT east side. Today, 24 years later, that program is a non-profit that has grown to include 65 of those students each being mentored by their own adult mentor, a total of 130 participants. Hundreds of students have participated in the program. All buddies who remain with the program through high school are assisted in becoming a junior mentor to another new little buddy. The program also includes a $6000.00 scholarship for each buddy who graduates high school to assist him or her with higher educational endeavors. In October Of 2014, We Opened A New Chapter Of Buddy/Mentor, Inc In Charlotte, Nc With 39 Total Participants. Our Charlotte Program Has Now Grown To Include 44 Participants.

Interesting Info

We have supported hundreds of students, children and young adults over the past 25 years in CT and the past 4 here in Charlotte.
Our Board of Directors consists of 10 members. 3 of these members are graduates from our program, one of whom is the President.
