FOR PARTICIPANTS

in the Northeast Kingdom

WHAT BRINGS YOU TO VERMONT?

What brings you here?  Are you relocating for a job opportunity?  Moving back to be closer to family or friends?  Seeking to become rooted in a nice community?  Maybe you are looking for great recreation or simply trying to escape the hustle and bustle of a more metropolitan area.

SHARE YOUR STORY WITH SOMEONE HERE ALREADY. WHY?

The Vermont Welcome Wagon Project (VWWP) seeks to help people make connections and get settled more quickly into the green mountain state.  In a less social media driven and a more intentional and good old fashioned relationship driven way the program exists to connect you to resources and help make your transition a simple one!  We will assist you in finding more of what you came here for while we create a diverse, inclusive network of folks that understand the need for Vermont to grow and retain great people and talent in our state.

HOW CAN YOU DO THIS? SIGN ME UP!

Fill out this Google form with some very simple info about yourself (where in VT your relocating to, your interests, specific questions you have, etc).  This info is used only to communicate to our network of Hosts and to help geographically connect you most easily.  Within a couple of weeks of submitting the Google form you can expect to hear from a Host looking to connect.  Have fun and spread the good word! 

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?

The VWWP team will connect you with up to three individuals, known in the program as Hosts, who have volunteered their time to support this great cause.  The Hosts will reach out to you and meet you at a local park, go on a hike, meet for coffee or dinner (you get the idea!) and share stories/ideas about how to find community and help you get acquainted. With the goal of welcoming you to the state we hope you’ll get a better picture of what life in Vermont can be like.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?

All adults are invited to participate! …We believe diversity is fundamental to a strong and vibrant Vermont. By intention and design, our program welcomes all people to participate. We respect and affirm the dignity of each member of the community. Our only requirement is good intentions.
