The Buddy Project

'Buddy Project' helps students and their undergrad mentors weather pandemic

The St. Lawrence County People Project has developed a new program teaming area undergrads with K-12 students.

“The Buddy Project,” offers free, weekly mentoring, tutoring or specific skills training, such as language lessons, music lessons or yoga. A coalition of leaders and students, in collaboration with the county Youth Bureau, developed the plan to provide support to youths in a COVID-19 safe way.

The free program is open to all K-12 students within St. Lawrence County. Undergraduates from St. Lawrence University, SUNY Canton and SUNY Potsdam are available to support local youth. Read more here.
