Be a Peer Mentor to a New Student!

July 22, 2020

 

We are excited to continue our SSW Peer Mentoring Program for the 2020/ 2021 school year. Originally started in 2017, the program pairs continuing students (mentors) with incoming students (mentees) to provide guidance, answer questions, and to help connect with our large community. Mentors gain valuable leadership experience while sharing their knowledge.

If you are interested in becoming a mentor, please complete this form: https://umbforms.wufoo.com/forms/mov9yfc0sy19og/

Mentors are asked to participate in a 1-hour training to help you prepare for this role. Trainings are currently scheduled for following times:

Monday, July 27th 5-6pm

Wednesday, July 29th 12-1pm

Once you have completed the application, a link to the trainings will be emailed to you. If you have questions about the program, please email Deans Shafer and Taylor.

We will begin accepting applications for mentees once we have trained mentors. Be on the lookout for that application at the beginning of August!
