“I had heard great things about the Buddy Ambassadors Program before, but last year was the first time seeing it in action.
When Loverly Sheridan, founder and CEO of Buddy Ambassadors approached us to bring the program to the children at the Fuller Center, we were so excited that despite COVID-19, she was willing to come deliver the curriculum in person.
The Buddy Ambassadors Program has been of great benefit to the children enrolled in our Afterschool program, ages 5-10.
From day one, the lessons have managed to capture the children’s attention and minds, but most importantly their hearts! Our first groups just completed the Be a Buddy, not a Bully program, and we are happy to see the children interacting in more positive ways and reminding one another of the key lessons they have learned this school year.
The program’s design is engaging and highly interactive while also being fun. Through each session, the children learned important lessons on how to be a friend to others, how to use their kind words and how to stand up for others.
These lessons can touch children’s hearts as they learn to navigate life and relationships in spite of difficulties. We would love for this wonderful program to continue so that we can reach all of the children we serve at the Fuller Center. Thank you!!”

This is so awesome and what a great module for the little ones. Early childhood education is so important for the development and future of our children; who one day will be adults reflecting on what they were taught as children. Mrs. Fuller should be proud!
I’ve heard and read so much about the buddy embasador’s program, and my wish is that it reaches every child. Indeed, we need more buddies in this world. Great job Ms. Sheridan, keep going!
Thank you so much for your kind words, Donalyn. The buddy ambassador’s program remains committed to raising buddies in our societies; one child at a time and we believe that soon, every child would be reached. Thank you, again
This program is amazing my child was in the program and cannot stop talking about it. As parents sometimes we get busy and forget to tell our children the things they need to hear and learn but this program is all about kindness and sets the foundation for are youth and says the things we may forget to say. You cannot lose having your child in this program because children retain more in front of their peers and hearing things outside the home that supports what a parents tries to teach can only help. Loverly Sheridan and this great program gets the message across and plants a seed that will grow in our children. Thank you for all you are doing and will do to better the next generation.
This is so heartwarming. I am glad that your child had an awesome time learning about being a buddy and promoting the culture of kindness, that is what we hope to achieve with every child we meet.
Say hi to your child, I believe he won’t stop being an amazing buddy.
