Mines Buddies is a volunteer partnership between young adults with intellectual disabilities (ID) and SDSM&T students. The purpose of the program is to offer young adults with ID (buddies) a chance to have campus experiences just like their typical peer students at SDSM&T (friends). This program also offers SDSM&T students the opportunity to connect with and become more aware of people with ID which fulfills part of the university’s STEPS vision. After an agreed number of service hours, SDSM&T students may receive a letter of recommendation.
If you are interested in being a SDSM&T friend or a buddy, please fill out the appropriate application and send to the address provided.
