The Chittenden County Mentoring Network (CCMN) hosted its annual appreciation event for mentors and supporters of the local youth mentoring community at ArtsRiot on Tuesday, November 17. Nearly 100 local volunteer mentors gathered together to celebrate mentoring and network with their colleagues in a relaxing setting.  The evening’s guest speaker was Madina Arbow, a 21-year-old mentee through the Spectrum Mentoring program.

The event was made possible through support from the United Way of Chittenden County, Wendell’s Furniture, The Wagoner Libby Group at KW Vermont, and MENTOR Vermont.
