Lunch Buddy Mentorship Program

CPS Lunch BuddiesThe CPS Lunch Buddy Program is a brand new initiative at Community Partnership School designed to promote positive lunchtime dialogue and nurture meaningful relationships between students and adult figures.

Lunch Buddies commit anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour and a half to sit with a table of students during lunch, and will:

  • Help children develop social skills, practice communicating with diverse individuals, and foster self-confidence
  • Develop meaningful relationships with CPS students
  • Provide lunchtime relief for classroom teachers

We’ll provide the conversation starters, and you’ll provide companionship and guidance to elementary-age youth! To learn more, please contact the CPS Advancement Office at (215)-235-0461 or
