Donate Your Time ~ Be a Chautauqua Connector

Connectors meet with one or more Summer Scholars while they’re in Chautauqua ~ at our Meet & Greet, on the porch for Coffee & Conversation, on a walk around the grounds, etc. Learning about their interests and goals and potentially continuing your connection over time helps these students to concretely increase their social capital. Connectors can also help recruit future Summer Scholars from their home region.

To become a Connector, please contact us at
