How to Become a Peer Mentor


Why become a Peer Mentor?

Mentoring another student is not only beneficial for the student being mentored (Mentee), but it enhances your (the Mentor's) study and life skills, giving you valuable career-related skills. Mentors develop increased self-awareness, and if you are interested in working with people, you'll find this experience highly relevant. As a valued volunteer, you are given extensive training in September and ongoing support throughout the year. Don’t forget - you get fed at meetings! We also have great parties - a Welcome Back party in September and January, and an end of year "Appreciation Party" - hosted by the Coordinator.
