Wayne Miller is a graduate of Springfield College where he studied human services, mental health, and addiction treatment. He is the program director of The Center for Recovery Resources, a peer-based community center for individuals and families impacted by addiction. Growing up, Wayne was one of only a few children of color in his community. In adulthood, he recognized the lack of support that Black youth receive in Vermont and was motivated to help in some way. In the Fall of 2018, Wayne founded Living Proof Mentoring to support Black youth & their families through advocacy, community building, and mentorship. In addition to facilitating individual and small group mentoring opportunities, Wayne also provides workshops and program support to other mentoring programs, as well as other community based coalitions and organizations in Vermont and New Hampshire. Wayne is based in the Upper Valley region of Vermont where he lives with his fiancee and their two children.
