The B.U.D.D.Y. Organization of North East Texas (Brothers Uncles and Dads Developing Youth) is a non-profit organization which strives to serve as mentors and coaches to the youth of Northeast Texas, regardless of race, color, or gender. B.U.D.D.Y.’s primary weapons to achieving these goals are providing students encouragement, praise, educational assistance, wholesome activities outside the classroom, and serving as a “listening ear” during the important pre-teen and early teen developmental years.
The organization is the home based in the Daingerfield area and has been in operation over 7 years. The goal is to spread the mentoring and instill morals and values of children of this age. Many are without Father figures in the home and need the male guidance and leadership that men in the community can provide for them.
They are trying to get this program established and two meetings have already met twice at the high school. A very good response was given including some of the coaching staff and ministers in the area.
