Celebrate the annual fall Alumni of Color Mentoring Initiative Weekend with returning alumni volunteers and students from Friday, Sept. 14 to Sunday, Sept. 16. The weekend will be held in conjunction with Alumni and Parent Engagement volunteer meetings and Homecoming.
Need travel and housing assistance?
If your class year is between 2008-2018, ODEI has funding to reimburse you for half of your travel costs up to $200. You must make your own travel arrangements and then submit a receipt to ODEI to process your reimbursement. ODEI will cover the cost of lodging for all volunteers who stay at the Holiday Inn Express-Mount Vernon and ground transportation to/from CMH. To secure a room at the Holiday Inn, you must submit your registration form by Aug. 27, 2018. If you are a part of another volunteer group but wish to attend the AOC events, please fill out our registration form as it is different.
Feel free to invite other alumni of color who might be interested in mentoring current Kenyon students of color. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to join our email list.
