Alejandro and Jaxsun
were matched 3 years ago in the Carson Lunch Buddies Program. Jaxsun needed a
good male role model who could also help him academically. Jaxsun’s teacher
asked Alejandro to come into the classroom to work on Jaxsun’s classwork with
him. She said that he was a huge help with him.
They also enjoy drawing as Jaxsun is a talented
artist and is encouraged by Alejandro. Legos and board games are also an
activity that they enjoy.
The re-connection that was witnessed last year
after summer break was one for the books. Jaxsun literally ran across the
playground and jumped into Alejandro’s waiting arms. The relationship that
these two have is an example of the connection that the program provides.
