The SASHP Peer Mentor Program matches new SASHP students with current students who volunteer to serve as Peer Mentors. Peer Mentors assist first-year students in the transition to Rutgers through sharing information about the university, assisting Mentees with majors, minors, and extracurricular opportunities, and providing friendship and support at SASHP and Rutgers events.
Peer Mentors are required to attend a minimum of one Peer Mentor event and submit a report assessing their Mentor/Mentee relationship each semester.
We are also looking for creative and enthusiastic leaders to serve on the Peer Mentor Programming Board. Programming Board Leaders work as a team to help develop, market, and execute Peer Mentor events, as well as run the Peer Mentor social media accounts.
Peer Mentor Training
All Peer Mentors will be required to attend a mandatory virtual training taking place the week of April 26, 2021. Date and time TBD for Zoom training.
Mentors and Mentees are matched in May and have an opportunity to meet at the Virtual Peer Mentor & Mentee Summer Gathering in June.
