Peer Mentor
Program Description

Adelante recognizes that our FYE scholars sometimes lack the adequate guidance and resources to successfully complete their first year. We created the peer mentoring program with the intention of connecting first-year students with current ELAC students who have successfully completed their first year. Adelante FYE Peer Mentors are selected based on their academic standing and their experience to encourage and guide first time college students. The mentor and mentee meet at least once per month to discuss topics ranging from academic, financial, social, professional and personal matters. The Adelante Program Coordinator facilitates mandatory trainings to ensure mentors feel prepared and confident to begin their mentor practice in the fall semester.

Adelante Peer Mentor Program’s Mission Statement

The Adelante Peer Mentor Program supports FYE scholars to develop their self-advocacy skills, transfer identity, and college-going mindset.
