Each summer, about sixty students serve in the Notre Dame Vision program as Mentors-in-faith. Typically, forty-four of these students are Small Group Mentors (who facilitate small group discussions and serve as dorm counselors), and sixteen are Music Mentors (who lead all music for the program in both liturgical and non-liturgical settings, including the performance of three short musicals).
