Engaging for Success
The Gustavus Mentoring: Engaging for Success program matches Gustavus students with a Gustavus alumni, parent, or friend for a mentoring relationship.
The program runs October - May. Mentoring pairs are expected to make contact at least once per month. Conversation starters will be provided to offer guidance on discussion topics.
