PALS mentoring program
Jan. 14, 2022

 

The college's peer mentors are role models who use their experience to help students have a successful first year. 

PALS Mentors are connected with first-year students who provide academic and social support, as well as and ongoing advice about college success. In addition to helping first-year students succeed, mentors build important leadership and communication skills and forge strong bonds with fellow students and earn $12 per hour. This is a year-long commitment of 5-10 hours per week during the academic semesters.

Each mentor will:

  • Meet with the 5-10 mentees assigned to them at least once a month throughout the academic year
  • Attend monthly team meetings (led by each mentor)
  • Meet with their supervisor monthly
  • Organize and host group events and socials with other mentors
