The Middlebury College Community Friends program is celebrating 60 years of mentoring relationships this Spring 2020!

The Middlebury College Community Friends program is celebrating 60 years of mentoring relationships this Spring 2020! Originally supported by Counseling Services of Addison County, The Center for Community Engagement now advises student leaders to coordinate the program. 

Almost 5,000 participants have been impacted by Community Friends since it started in 1960, and there are currently 140 pairs of mentors and mentees meeting on a regular basis on campus. To honor this milestone, we gathered stories of mentoring from past and current participants, which we synthesized into an audio story.

Thanks!

Thank you for the 27 individuals who participated in interviews, listed below. Current mentees are listed with their first names (and ages) only.
