The Sister2Sister (S2S) Peer Mentoring program pairs first year students with upper-level students to be mentored during the academic year. Mentors and mentees meet weekly for private sessions, participate in workshops sponsored by the Women’s Resource Center, perform community service, and attend various cultural events.
Mentors and mentees also participate in focus groups at the end of each semester to share their experiences with the program.
The program is Co-Curricular Transcript (CCT) approved.
The Sister2Sister Mentoring Program was founded by the former Director of the Women’s Resource Center, Deborah Parker. The Program’s inception in 2007 stemmed from Parker’s leadership to support students through mentorship while creating a safe space for them to express their views and concerns. Parker’s idea to pair students has been so successful that it prompted her to draft a proposal that garnered national attention from the Liz Claiborne Foundation. With the aid of a generous grant from the foundation, Ms. Parker launched the flagship program in Spring 2008.
