Program Overview

Why should I meet with a Peer Mentor?

Adjusting to college can be challenging. As a new student, you may feel overwhelmed with the academic workload, all of the new terms and processes, and a new social setting. 

Peer Mentors can help you successfully navigate through all of these college processes by helping you connect to resources, understand the culture of college, and become part of a community of learners who have similar interests and goals. Peer Mentors provide a positive environment to help ease the adjustment to college life!

Make An Appointment

Please fill out the Peer Mentor Service Request to give your Peer Mentor some preliminary information on what you would like assistance with – this will allow for your mentor to be more prepared to help you.

What is Peer Mentoring and how does it work?

Peer Mentors are continuing students who leverage their own skills and expertise to help other Skyline College students have a successful education. Our mentors will work one-on-one with you to help identify challenges, set goals, and build skills. Specifically, Peer Mentors provide  support with the following outcomes in mind:

  • Increase mentees knowledge about resources which may help them succeed in college
  • Promote development of educational, leadership, career and learning goals
  • Increase social engagement and sense of belonging for students
  • Increase academic engagement and success 

The goal of the Peer Mentoring program at Skyline College is to increase student retention and success for mentees by engaging them early in their academic journey to identify challenges and connect to the appropriate resources that will facilitate their success.
