Peer Mentoring Program


 

Grad school can be hard, and sometimes you may need a little direction and guidance from someone who has been in your shoes. Hence, the Peer Mentor Program aims at providing mentees guidance and learning from their peers as well as mentors the opportunity to develop, and strengthening relationships between students. Each mentee, who is usually a first-year student, will be assigned a continuing student as a Peer Mentor. We pair up mentors and mentees based on their interests.

Eligibility

All participants of this program must join OHDCC officially prior to applying for the program (i.e. you have paid $40 life-time membership dues. If you have not paid and would like to participate in the Peer Mentor Program, please see HERE for instructions to pay.).
