Bowling for Buddies

This year, the YWCA of Alexandria-Pineville celebrates the 32nd anniversary of its YW-Buddies Mentoring Program, which has matched—at no cost to participants—nearly 2,000 Central Louisiana children with volunteer mentors who provide homework assistance, shared interests, and encouragement. We kindly request your support of this vital program, so that new generations can benefit from greater student performance, improved self-esteem and interpersonal skills, and healthier lifestyle choices. The YWCA has seen, first-hand, these and other successes through YW-Buddies.

This year's Bowling for Buddies event will be held Saturday, June 26th at Four Seasons Bowling Center.
