Study Buddies

Study Buddies benefit St. Peter schools by providing teaching assistance as requested by teachers. Volunteers work in direct contact with students of all ages and backgrounds, doing whatever tasks are needed—including tutoring, reading support, math support, and other classroom tasks. The goal is to support local educators in enabling every student to reach their highest potential. The amount of time dedicated varies based on needs of the teachers and is flexible. Gusties commit to the program for at least one semester at a time.

Mission Statement

Study Buddies works to utilize Gustavus students and their talents to complement the quality of education offered in St. Peter. Our volunteers do this by working in direct contact with students of all ages and backgrounds, wherever needed. The program will give educators additional means, through our volunteers, to enable every student to reach their highest potential. We value meaningful partnerships between Gustavus students and St. Peter Schools.
