College can be confusing, and students often find themselves overwhelmed. Peer Mentors are here to help ease the adjustment to college life!

The Learning Center Peer Mentoring program at Skyline College has served over 150 students in September by leveraging the skills of experienced Skyline College students to help their fellow students succeed. Our eight peer mentors are trained to facilitate academic and personal success for their fellow students through practical skill development by:

  • Building mentee’s knowledge of college resources
  • Promoting development of educational, leadership, career, and learning goals
  • Fostering social engagement and a sense of belonging to large and small campus communities
  • Increasing student engagement with their academics

The Peer Mentoring program works closely with Promise Scholars, Counseling 100 Faculty, Middle College, and other programs across campus to provide workshops customized to student needs. Workshops planned for Fall 2018 include:

  • Navigating Your First Year in College
  • Introduction to Microsoft Word
  • Be Web Savvy: Tips & Tricks
  • How to Connect to Your Professor
  • Time Management & Organization
