Peer Mentors

Peer mentors are part of a supportive community. They work with students in BUILD to provide friendship, model life skills, and give guidance with school work.

Mentor Descriptions

Housing mentors: Housing mentors live near students in the BUILD program in the same residence hall. Mentors help students develop life skills that will transition them to living independently. This includes self-care, home management (laundry, cleaning, etc.), weekly meal planning and preparation, and social/community participation. 

Student mentors: Student mentors help students in BUILD with homework and study skills throughout the week from their core courses and electives. 

Job mentors: Job mentors help coach and support students in the BUILD program during their internship lab and internships.
