Castine Student Sponsor Program
The community of Castine is interwoven with the MMA community, and one of the best examples of the supportive town-gown relationship is the Castine Sponsor program offered to out of state students.
Castine community members volunteer to serve as sponsors to out of state students to provide support and introduction to the local community. Sponsors invite students to their homes for dinner, take them shopping, help to arrange transportation home at vacation periods, and invite students to join family activities. Sponsors often cheer on their sponsorees at home athletic contests and other celebrations of achievement. The extent and level of contact is decided by the student and sponsoring family.
Space is limited, and priority is given to out of state students coming from the greatest distance.
