Excited to announce our newest program

The PTBM team is excited to announce our latest program to empower and educate youth in our mission towards inclusion and anti-bullying "Proud To Be A Buddy" Friendship Program

"Proud To Be A Buddy" Friendship Program is all about inclusion and fostering a sense of friendship.  They are installed somewhere prominent in the school yard and kids who are looking to make new friends or broaden their friendship group will hang out at the "Proud To Be A Buddy" Friendship Bench.  As schools make the "Proud To Be A Buddy" Friendship Program part of their culture it becomes a great focal point in the school community and helps to reduce isolation and build a real sense of friendship in the schoolyard.
