Bona Buddies is a youth mentoring program where one-to-one relationships are established between St. Bonaventure University students and local children, ages 5 to 15.
All of these children need the friendship, special attention, and interest of an older person. These relationships often fill the gap in the life of a youngster who needs positive role models and experiences.
Students: Be a mentor and make a difference Sign up to be a mentor. All you need to give is a few hours each month and you can make a difference in the life of a child.
It’s a great way to get to know others in the community, to help a child, and have fun. You may even be eligible to get credit for participating.
What can you do with your Bona Buddy? Hang out at the mall, walk the recreation trail, go to a movie, attend a Bonnies basketball game or another campus event ... There are numerous ways to provide companionship for your buddy.
