Maine Maritime Academy’s Student Sponsor Program is seeking community volunteers to serve as host families for out-of-state students new to the college this year.
Sponsors must live within a reasonable distance from campus and are requested to attend a reception to introduce sponsors and sponsorees, and review the expectations of the program. The reception will be held on Monday, September 24, 2018 at 4:00 p.m. at the Harborview Dining Room (Alfond Student Center) on campus.
Initiated more than 10 years ago, the program is designed to pair new students with faculty, staff, and community hosts. The program gives new students the opportunity to meet members of the MMA and Castine community as a way to ease the often-stressful transition to college life. In turn, members of the community gain an insider’s view of student life and activities at the college and develop personal relationships with students. Sponsors are asked to host one student per year and are welcome to host up to four at a time.
Prospective sponsors are required to fill out an application. Applications are available at the Castine Town Office or by contacting Rhonda Varney: firstname.lastname@example.org, 326-2220.
