Peer to Peer Program

The Peer to Peer Program is a great opportunity for students to cultivate their own leadership skills and abilities in the context of their culture and college experience while learning about the role of mentorship.

We are looking for students who have a desire for personal and professional growth with a focus on community development. Participation is on a voluntary and rolling basis.
