Big Partner Little Partner

In the Big Partner Little Partner (BPLP) program, Gustavus students are paired with children from the community who will benefit from building a friendship with a Gustie.

Partners spend time together doing things like fishing, biking, baking, playing games, and sharing ice cream in the caf. Large group activities such as movies and field trips are planned monthly.

Mission Statement

To build stronger ties between the St. Peter Community and Gustavus Adolphus College by having the leaders of today mentor the leaders of tomorrow through a one-on-one relationship.

Strategic Plan

During fall semester, each of the Community Service Center programs created a strategic plan for their respective programs. The plans are based on the program's mission statement and outline the program's goals, objectives, and initiatives for the next three to five years. The plans were created to further strengthen the program through the development of program infrastructure, the deepening of community partnerships, and increased focus on volunteer engagement and learning.  Starting now and continuing for the next three to five years, programs will work to carry out their respective plans.
