About Project Friendship

Project Friendship matches college students with elementary school youth (grades 2nd-7th) from the Northfield schools.

Established in 1965, Project Friendship matches college students with elementary school youth (grades 2nd-7th) from the Northfield schools. The goal of the program is to develop strong friendships between college students who have made positive choices in their lives and children who need such role models. Pairs meet once a week, and additionally participate with other pairs in a large group activity a few times a term. Volunteers must complete an application and go through orientation.

The Community Coordinator is Sarah VanSickle, who can be reached at  507-301-7705 or sarah@projectfriendshipmentoring.org.
