The Nightingales Project is a mentoring program here at St. Olaf. Any female student can apply to be a mentor and be matched with a middle school girl from Northfield Middle School or Arcadia Charter School. We’re all about building new friendships and helping one another get through the school year! We have a group event every month, and mentors are expected to plan additional activities with their mentees between those group meetings. This year as a group we have pumpkin carved, made friendship bracelets, baked and decorated cookies, written positive messages on sidewalks all over campus, and many other fun activities. We have so much fun at these group events we often forget to take pictures, but here we are at our annual pumpkin carving that happens every October. We’re looking forward to our final event of the year in a couple of weeks, and are so excited to see what next year brings.
Mentor applications are given out every Fall, so shoot us an email or stop by at our table at the co-curric fair if you’re interested!
