Peer Mentoring

Peer Mentors provide support, guidance and foster a community of support while building relationships with our scholars. Our mentoring program provides scholars with the opportunities to connections to key services, resources, and individuals who assist scholars with being successful academically while adjusting to college life and attaining a sense of belonging and inclusiveness.

Peer mentors communicate with scholars on a consistent basis, assist with referrals to appropriate campus resources, and provide leadership during TRIO Programs activities. They provide a support system during the semester, serve as a connection for employment opportunities, and serve as an opportunity for campus engagement.

The TRIO Programs peer mentoring program earned national certification standards from the International Mentor Training Program Certification from the College Reading & Learning Association.

Peer Mentoring is a free service to all participating PRIME STEM and Project BEST scholars. Appointments may be scheduled online or in person (Howard Phillips Hall, Suite 208) for a face-to-face or virtual meeting with an Peer Mentor.
