Commercial motor vehicle drivers willing to help mentor youth as a pen pal should look into joining the program at Trucker Buddy International.
Trucker Buddy International is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization started in 1992 that is dedicated to helping educate school children.
Professional truck drivers who have undergone background checks work with children in grades K-8 as well as special needs classes, Girls and Boys Clubs and Scouting events.
Trucker Buddy matches classes of students with professional truck drivers. Every week drivers share news about their travels with their class. Once a month, students write letters to their drivers. The program helps students improve their skills in reading, writing, geography, mathematics, social studies and history.
