Lunch Buddies at Jefferson Elementary School: One time a week a mentor will come in and have lunch with a 4th or 5th grade student during their lunch period. Mentors and mentees have conversations to help mentees develp logical thinking and decision-making skills, responsible behavior and healthy relationships with their peers, teachers and other adults, along with finding safe/alternative activities in the community. A mentor is an additional role model in the child's life.
