Our team at Monaco Ford is excited to have donated $20,000 to the local Manchester Community College in nearby Manchester, CT. Our pride in our military personnel inspired this charitable contribution to go towards a new program that benefits veterans and active service members, in an effort to increase their performances and relationships on campus after the experiences that come with time served abroad.

Monaco Ford and Manchester Community College Introduce the Veteran-II-Veteran Peer Mentorship Program

The remarkable Veteran-II-Veteran Peer Mentorship Program works to enable a healthier transition from activity military life to a collegiate setting at Manchester Community College. It's an initiative truly focused on our veterans, and our great respect for our service men and women adds to the passion in this project:

The VIIV program is multi-faceted in its approach, which provides stable groundwork for:

  • Assisting veterans and service members on leave with their transition to Manchester Community College
  • Helping to foster a connection with faculty, staff and students via a structured peer mentoring system
  • Utilizing teawork to facilitate student-to-student interaction, engagement and intervention
  • Offering a big brother/big sister mentorship to forge connections with others that last throughout and beyond their career at MCC.

Chrissy Monaco, Controller at Monaco Ford, said of the donation, "We feel strongly about helping fund the MCC Veteran peer mentoring program because it's a small way we can pay it forward for all of the sacrifices these men and women have given for us and our country. We want to help veterans get excited about pursuing an education and finding a career they are proud of after their time in the military."
