HOPE (Helping Overcome Poverty’s Effects) is seeking 1-2 Middlebury College students to serve as members on their Board of Trustees. HOPE’s vision is that all people in Addison County have access to the tools and resources necessary to meet their own basic needs. HOPE’s services include a food shelf, counseling, self-empowerment programs, and more. HOPE is located at 282 Boardman Street, accessible from campus via the ACTR bus.
Through this position student trustees will gain new perspectives about community needs in Addison County, learn about the operations of a non-profit, and make a positive impact in our local community. Student trustees will be expected to attend monthly meetings in addition to other projects. Interested?
