Buddy Program gets $25K

ASPEN – The Buddy Program announced Wednesday that it recently was awarded a grant of $25,000 by the Aspen Community Foundation for 2012.

The grant will be used to provide general operating funds for the Buddy Program’s four mentoring programs and integral support services, the Aspen nonprofit said in a statement.

In 2011, the Buddy Program served 649 youths in the Roaring Fork Valley by providing one-on-one mentoring relationships, experiential group mentoring and additional support services such as free counseling, scholarships for extracurricular activities and scholarships for continuing education for its youth participants.

Since 1987, the Aspen Community Foundation has given $233,532 in grants to the Buddy Program.
