Following college he served as an AmeriCorps VISTA with the DREAM Program, a community based mentoring program that partners youth from local affordable housing communities with mentors from neighboring colleges.

Benji Thurber, Communications and Technology Manager
Benji graduated from Middlebury College in 2008, and received his Bachelor’s degree in English and American Literature. While in college, he volunteered as a one-on-one writing tutor for a fellow student. Benji joined Mobius as an AmeriCorps VISTA member (through the Vermont Youth Tomorrow program) in 2009, and helped recruit new mentors, promote public awareness of the mentoring cause, and expanded the Mentor Discount Card program for mentor pairs in Chittenden County. Benji transitioned to a staff position with the organization in 2011, and over the past two years has overseen the U and I are Mentors recruitment campaign, and worked with mentoring programs and funders across the state to expand the organization into Vermont’s Mentoring Partnership. In his new position as Communications and Technology Manager, he is implementing the Vermont Mentoring Database, an online system that allows mentoring agencies to store program information on the Mobius website, apply for grants, and manage information and outcome data for their mentoring matches. He is also working to develop and expand public awareness efforts across the state.
Andrea Holt, Communications and Marketing Specialist/AmeriCorps VISTA email@example.com
Andrea earned her Bachelor’s degree in Marketing Communications from Emerson College in 2013. During the summer of her freshman year, Andrea moved her way up from Intern to Event Planner and Marketing Assistant at a health and wellness center. Mid-way through her college career Andrea studied abroad in Dublin, Ireland with a Champlain College study abroad program. There, she worked with a non-profit called Hireland. Andrea spent the rest of her time at Emerson working as a Marketing Consultant for an online health and nutrition assistance company and as a Marketing Intern at PR agency, RF|Binder. Although she has held varying positions all across the marketing industry, she stands by the fact that her most valuable occupation was a simple summer position canvassing the streets for Greenpeace. Andrea’s time there taught her that if something as treasured as the Earth must be fought to protect, then how much more must we have to fight for one another. As an AmeriCorps VISTA serving through the Vermont Youth Tomorrow program at Mobius, Andrea works with local businesses to expand the Mobius Mentor Discount Card throughout the state of Vermont, assists with outreach, planning, training and execution of National Mentoring Month, publishes Mobius’ monthly mentoring newsletter, and keeps Mobius’ social media networks active, engaging and informative.
