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.
- Listen to the audio story from mentors and mentees!
- Read a reflection about the creation process.
- Read the audio story’s transcript.
- Learn more about the current program and get more involved with Community Friends.
