Trucker Buddy International is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization started in 1992 and dedicated to helping educate and mentor schoolchildren via a pen pal relationship between professional truck drivers and children in grades K-8. 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. Students' skills in reading, writing, geography, mathematics, social studies, and history are enhanced and learning is fun.

Hi! I recently visited my Trucker Buddy class in Newberry FL, at Healthy Learning Academy. Mrs. Amber Matts and HLA always welcome me. The kiddos ask lots of questions about trucking and the truck, and we talk a lot about where I've been and where I'm going. In the classroom we usually end up doing at least one math problem and sometimes more! Going over safety of getting into and out of the truck before touring the inside of the truck is a highlight.They like to see me throw a strap across my cargo.
Happy Thanks giving day celebrations to Trucker buddy CEO Alan and Team. God bless you all. Blessings from Olwal Montessori School and Kampala Montessori School
Hello, I have filled out my documents online and our classroom is patiently awaiting a penpal here in GA. Any takers?
