​Peer Mentoring

 

Peer Mentors are elite student leaders devoted to encouraging and assisting first-year students in a successful transition to college. 

Peer Mentors guide their new peers through the academic, social and career rigors of the college environment while collaboratively setting attainable goals.  These student leaders serve as role models and are an integral part of the 1-2-3 Connect: First Year Experience Program and Bergen Community College.

Peer Mentors are assigned to the sections of IST123: Success 101 (T) to provide in-class support to first-year students.  In addition, the Peer Mentors hold office hours Monday through Friday, 9:00 A.M. - 5:00 P.M., in B-220, the Peer Mentor Drop-In Center. Students are encouraged to visit B-220 to meet with their Peer Mentor for social and/or academic support or to connect with other peers in the Program.

1-2-3 Connect students are eligible to apply for the coveted (paid) Peer Mentor position after the successful completion of their first year in the 1-2-3 Connect: First Year Experience Program.  Serving as a Peer Mentor is a wonderful way to build your resume while acquiring leadership skills and recognition on campus.
