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 community? Maybe you seek recreation. Perhaps you are open to life outside the hustle and bustle of a more metropolitan area. There's so many different reasons to move to Vermont!
Dover Economic Development is a proud partner of the Vermont Welcome Wagon Project and is excited to help with your transition.
The Vermont Welcome Wagon Project (VWWP) seeks to help people make connections and get settled more quickly into the green mountain state. We help you connect you to resources and wish to help make your transition as simple and fulfilling as possible!
HOW CAN YOU DO THIS? SIGN ME UP!
Fill out this form with some very simple info about yourself (where in VT you are relocating to, your interests, any 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 form, you can expect to hear from a Host looking to connect.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?
Your local VWWP team will connect you with up to three individuals, known in the program as Hosts, who have volunteered their time to support our cause. Hosts will reach out to you to find a mutually convenient and safe location (such as a spot overlooking Lake Champlain in Waterfront Park or a local coffee shop) to connect and share ideas about how to find community and get acquainted. We hope this time spent will give you better sense of what life in Vermont is and can be like.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
All adult humans 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.
