Big Buddies

This is a pairing of an elementary age child in Davie County who is enrolled in the YMCA after-school program with a volunteer or Big Buddy that is typically a high school age student. The Big Buddy is expected to see the child once a week after school, and all interaction takes place on-site at the YMCA after-school location. These match relationships are designed to build the child’s confidence, caring, and competence. Students at Davie County High School and West Forsyth High School are currently able to participate in Big Buddy.
