The Chautauqua Connections Program seeks to enhance a student’s support system by linking the student with a CHQ individual or family. The experience is different for every student/sponsor, but Connections sponsors may provide occasional invitations to meals, use of a washing machine, a place to hang out, and your own special fan at recitals and concerts.

Students report the experience as “fabulous” and “a wonderful way to be a part of the community at CHQ.” Information will be sent to each enrolled student in the spring, or e-mail Susan Helm at
