Middlebury College College Access Mentors (MiddCAM) is a student organization that pairs college students with local high school juniors and seniors from Middlebury Union High School (MUHS). Our goal is to provide information and support to students as they navigate towards their post-graduate plans and apply to colleges. We hope that our mentors can act as positive role models for our mentees’ lives beyond simply academics, and also serve as a resource to relieve unnecessary stress from the college process.
I joined MiddCAM during my sophomore year, and am currently mentoring my second high schooler. I really enjoy hanging out with my mentee, getting to use my college experience in a purposeful way, and hearing stories from other mentors. Not only have I enjoyed spending time with my mentees, but I have also had the privilege of gaining a deeper connection to MUHS and their fantastic guidance department!
