Big Buddy



The Big Buddy Program provides ongoing asset-based programming for youth ages 5 to 18 focused on building resiliency against poverty, crime and academic failure – major threats to the economic development of our community. 

Big Buddy has been serving young people in the Baton Rouge community for 40 years. We are a proud local organization that has grown to serve an average of 500 young people per week. Core program services include: Mentoring, Extended Learning, and Level-UP! Workforce Development. 

Volunteers completing their Service-Learning requirement with our organization will be utilized in the Extended Learning program. All volunteers must attend an orientation and pass a background check that is conducted by our agency before beginning their hours.
