Michael Anderson is a member of the New Haven Friends Meeting and a founding member of the Friends Center for Children. He has served on the board since 2001 and currently serves on the Building Committee, spearheading efforts for design and construction of the Friends Center’s new facility, particularly related to ensuring the building is a “green structure.”
Michael’s appreciation of cooperative education began when his two children, as toddlers, attended the Children’s Cooperative Daycare in New Haven. For Michael, the experience - seeing the many benefits of cooperative early childhood education - became the seed for the Friends Center cooperative model. Michael lives in Guilford and works at the Peabody Museum, where he designed and sculpted the iconic Torosaurus that stands watch on Whitney Avenue outside of the Peabody Museum.
