What is Peer Mentoring?
The Peer Mentor program, simply put, is students helping students in a purposeful way. Current students who are looking for an empowering interpersonal leadership experience and who meet the program criteria are encourage to apply to become Mentors. BMCC’s Peer Mentors are committed to sharing their own experiences to motivate others, help them grow, set goals and become successful.
Starting college can be an overwhelming experience. From learning simpler things like finding your way around, or where to go for help; to discovering ways to balance classwork, home, job and figuring out which student organizations or experiences to be a part of; or, even choosing a major – it’s a big adjustment! It is a lot to learn, plan and keep track of!
To alleviate much of the confusion when transitioning to college, the Peer Mentoring Program at BMCC helps new students adjust to the college environment, make connections on campus and feel empowered to chart their own course to success. The program matches successful continuing students with new students, connecting them as partners for a semester-long experience.
