Baylor Buddies

Baylor Buddies is a partnership between Baylor University and Communities in School (CIS). Through the program, Baylor students serve as mentors to children in the Waco Independent School District. Children range in age from early elementary school through middle school. Baylor Buddies allows Baylor students to act as positive role models, develop relationships with children in the community, and mature as leaders.
