First- and Second-Year Experience to host annual peer mentor training

July 30, 2017

First- and Second-Year Experience (FYSE) invites student leaders to participate in this year’s Peer Mentor Training on Friday, Aug. 25, from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in Altgeld Hall, Room 315.

Benefits of Participating:

The purpose of this training is to provide all peers in mentor roles with basic peer mentor training. This is an attempt to alleviate the time, resources and duplicative efforts put into training our peer mentors individually. It also allows time for you to work with your peer mentors on specific skills and the mentoring program goals that are unique to your program.

What to Expect:

The annual Peer Mentor Training provides useful information and tools for upcoming and continuing peer mentors in all participating programs. The training is divided into two sessions; the first session gives all peer mentors general information regarding role expectations, first-year challenges and campus resources. For the second session, students will separate into their respective programs and be provided information for their specific program.  

How to Participate:

If you are interested in having your peer mentors take part in this training, provide their details (name, program and contact information), along with a list of students who will be attending, to FSYE by Wednesday, Aug. 9.
