Seeking Community Friends Mentee Referrals

comm-friendsCommunity Friends, now in its 56th year, pairs Addison County kids ages 6-12 with Middlebury College students in one-to-one mentoring relationships. Pairs are matched based on factors like interests, age, and transportation availability. Then, they meet weekly during the academic year to spend time on campus, do arts and crafts, play sports, and more!

The student organization also sponsors monthly events that pairs can attend together, like a pool party and “Skate with the Panthers.” If you think your child might enjoy having a big brother or big sister, you can talk to their school guidance counselor about being referred, or complete the form yourself available at go/cf. Please note: it may take a month or two to find the right match.

Please contact Megan Brakeley, Center for Community Engagement Assistant Director for more information or with your completed referral form.
