Peer Mentoring in The Learning Center

Peer MentorThe Peer Mentoring Program at Skyline College is designed to help all students achieve their short and long term goals! Our eight peer mentors are trained to facilitate academic and personal success for their fellow students through practical skills by:

  • Building knowledge of college resources
  • Fostering social engagement and a sense of belonging
  • Increasing student engagement in academics
  • Developing education, leadership, career and learning goals

Peer mentors are excellent resources for information about Skyline College programs and services. Our peer mentors facilitated over 150 mentor and mentee meetings in Fall 2018 and led 18 workshops on topics such as:

  • Time management and organization
  • Note taking
  • Stress management
  • Writing and reading strategies
  • Goal setting

To connect with a peer mentor in your Meta Major or learn more about our workshops and other services, join us for our Meet the Mentors Mixer this Tuesday, February 12th, from 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. in The Learning Center. Food will be served!
