Benefits of Peer Mentoring

Mentoring can either be a paid or volunteer position in the Peer Mentor Program. However, it is not just a ‘job’ or an experience: mentoring is a relationship; a journey between the mentor and the mentee on the road to success at college. The more you give in helping others grow and reach their goals, the more you can receive back from the experience. In helping others, you help yourself along the way too, and gain other positive benefits that enhance your own personal development. As a Peer Mentor, you will:

  • Develop transferrable and marketable skills to enhance your professional experience
  • Increase self-awareness and foster personal growth
  • Cultivate leadership, organizational and self-management skills
  • Improve communication and interpersonal skills
  • Expand your CCT transcript and professional resume
  • Support student success in a meaningful way
  • Connect to the broader BMCC community
  • Build your network
