The Xaverian Pen Pal Project is an initiative that aims to combat feelings of loneliness and isolation, while also promoting positive inter-generational relationships between StFX students and members of the Antigonish community.

Individuals are matched with a specially chosen pen pal based on factors like shared interests and given an opportunity to communicate regularly with their pen pal using email, telephone, traditional mail or video calling. The project is particularly interested in pairing older adults and elementary/high school aged students with pen pals, although all interested community members are invited to apply!
