We aim to encourage communities to collaborate in creating a kinder future for our children by adopting and installing “Buddy Benches” in elementary schools and public spaces.
A Buddy Bench is a designated seat in schools or public spaces where children can sit if they need a friend by their side. It stands out, promotes awareness, and prevents bullying.
Children who want a friend to play or talk with can sit on the Buddy Bench. Kindness Ambassadors and other children are encouraged to invite them to join activities. Repeated use of the bench signals the need for support, prompting school staff to provide assistance.
