Project Friendship

Would you like to make a difference in a young child's life? Project Friendship is a Northfield-based non-profit dedicated to improving youth's self-esteem and self-confidence through intentional pairing between St. Olaf students and Northfield youth. After an informal interview with a Project Friendship staff member, you will be paired with a child, where once a week, you will do fun activities with your mentee! Games, sports, and walks around campus are only a few activities you can do with your mentee, while group activities include bowling and swimming. During each hourly meet-up with your mentee, you will develop an on-going relationship that will last a lifetime. Apply to be a mentor today at!
