Peer mentors are part of a supportive community and work with BUILD students through providing friendship, modeling life skills, and giving guidance with school work.
Housing mentors: Housing mentors live nearby BUILD students and help to develop life skills that will transition them to living independently. This will include self-care, home management (laundry, cleaning, etc.), weekly meal planning and preparation, and social/community participation.
Social mentors: Social mentors spend time hanging out, attending activities, and helping BUILD students build relationships around campus. Students are matched based on areas of social interests (e.g. theater, music, sports, etc.)
Student mentors: Student mentors help BUILD students with homework and study skills throughout the week from their core courses and electives.
Job mentors: Job mentors will help coach and support students in the BUILD program during their internships.
