The AFC Peer Mentorship Program is open to to First-Gen Students, Students of Color, and Queer and Trans Students.
The purpose is to connect first-year and sophomore students with juniors and seniors for individualized support based on shared identities that are important to them. Students have complete ownership as to what they want their mentorship experience to look like, whether it means providing academic, social, or community support—or all of the above!
How It Works
All peer mentors participate in a comprehensive training to allow them to reflect on their own identities and experiences, as well as equip them with resources to help their mentees thrive academically, socially, and professionally.
In addition to regular check-ins with mentors and mentees, we also host group events for the mentorship program.
