Telluride associates are all the people who ever have participated in a Telluride program. Being an associate is an ongoing relationship to the Association, its ideals, and the thousands of others who share them. Associates often participate in multiple Telluride programs. For instance, someone might attend a summer seminar and then go on to live in a Branch, become a TASS factotum, or serve as an adjunct or member of Telluride Association. Telluride encourages associates to participate in additional programs, or in another role, especially during high school, college, or graduate/professional school.
Associates also stay connected to Telluride and its educational mission in other ways. Examples include volunteering time to help recruit and select program participants, attending local events, and participating in online networks. The Association encourages all associates to Get Involved in one or more of these ways.
Telluride Association also relies on generous financial support from its associates. These contributions allow us to continue offering our uniquely educational, entirely free programs to new generations of students. To help pass on your Telluride experience to others, please make a donation.
