Peer Mentor – Summer for Success 2023

Summer for Success aims to give college-bound students who learn differently the skills, confidence and preparation to successfully transition from high school. Through academic and residential programming, students work towards increasing self-awareness, problem-solving, and social pragmatic skills to proactively determine the optimal college environment.

The Peer Mentors will work with students in and out of the classroom by supporting all programmatic efforts. As pivotal members of the team, Peer Mentors will help students increase engagement in the program and assist in efforts to ensure the program runs smoothly. Peer Mentors report directly to Beacon College Residence Life Staff, and indirectly to the Residence Life Coordinator & Director of Summer Programming, as well as other Summer for Success administrators and staff.
