How to Get Involved – Engage, Empower, and Reach Out!
The Peer 2 Peer Mentor Program matches incoming students with trained Peer Mentors to answer questions, connect to the campus community, and support students in their transition to become successful college students. The P2P program achieves this through specific programming and activities to create a community for first-year students and through one-on-one peer support and relationships.
Peer Mentors are LA Pierce College students who exhibit a commitment to their own academic success and are knowledgeable about campus resources and how to be academically engaged. The P2P Mentor Program’s goals are to improve student self-perception with effective peer to peer relationships; to retain 100% of the first-year students in the Peer 2 Peer Mentoring Program; and to increase students’ self-efficacy through: academic success workshops (proficiency), peer observation (observation), peer support (verbal & physiological) and engagement in “beyond the classroom” activities.
