Gustie Buddies is a mentorship program that pairs Gustavus students and youth with developmental delays from St. Peter and the surrounding communities to foster friendship and personal growth. Volunteers meet four times a month with their buddy. Two of which are planned group activities and two are individual meetings. Last year, the group activities included bowling, a Minnesota Twins game, science experiments, canvas painting and many other fun activities.
The mission of Gustie Buddies is to provide a safe environment for youth with developmental delays from St. Peter and the surrounding communities to strengthen personal skills, increase self confidence and build relationships. This will happen through positive and compassionate relationships with Gustavus students who are committed to promoting growth in understanding of themselves and others through dynamic and intentional programming.
