Sam Findlen-Golden ’20 of Amherst, Mass., leads a group of first-year students on a Labor Day walk through downtown Lewiston and Auburn. Here, they’re crossing the intersection of Lisbon and Pine streets. A Bates Mill building is in the distance. Each September during Orientation, all first-year students take part in the downtown walks, which are led by downtown-savvy students who are involved with the Harward Center for Community Partnerships. The groups learn about the sprawling and historic Bates Mill complex, new and old shops, businesses, and eateries on Lisbon Street, and opportunities to get involved in their new community.

The Greater Androscoggin Humane Society’s annual Dash for Dogs 5K is in April.

“When the ‘instructor’ is as much out of their comfort zone as the ‘student,’ the learning dynamic is remarkable.” Eliot Chalfin-Smith ’21 (left) of Gainesville, Fla., who created a summer program to teach Lewiston youth how to fix bicycles and improve skills, explains his mindset of learning “with, through, and from others.” Here working with a volunteer, Chalfin-Smith was funded by the Harward Center for Community Partnerships and the Maine Cycling Club.
