Why Get Involved?
Connecting with a UMN student can open doors for both you and the student. Learn what life is like for a student now and help them connect with their neighborhood. Students want to see how their studies can be applied to life around them. Your involvement can open doors for them as they can benefit from your experience and knowledge. You gain a new friend and a new perspective on student life.
Who Can be Involved?
Anyone 65 and older can be involved! Students often have 20-30 hours during a semester to give (September - December or January - May). They are willing to help around the house and/or yard, play games, cook with you, and lots more. Set up a time to meet that works with your schedule.
How to Get Involved?
Students begin classes in mid-January and want to get connected very soon afterwards. Complete the short form below and we'll make sure you meet someone as soon as school begins.
