Mission Statement:

The goal of the Peer Mentoring Program is to keep second year students connected with SSS as well as the greater campus community. Peer Mentors act as a personal connection to the campus and many resources. Mentors are there to help you get in contact with groups, activities, and people around campus that will
allow for students to grow their  connections around campus.in their pursuit of a bachelor’s degree.

“SSS is where I found my home here on campus. We are a family here. It is a safe place, a fun place, and for some, a job too!”

FERNANDO

“TRIO SSS is a program that has helped me navigate through college. It has provided someone to ask questions to that I would have no clue how to answer on my own.”

ILSA

“TRIO SSS has been a community that continues to push me to do the best I can in whatever I choose to do.”

SANDY

“In SSS I’ve made friends who had the same first-gen struggles. It guided me through my second year at UWO. SSS means support and is a great service to first-gen!”

The Peer Mentor Program is TIME CONSUMING?
FALSE!
Students can meet with their Peer Mentor as often or as little as they want! You don’t have to meet every week, BUT YOU CAN!
MYTH #2
The Peer Mentor Program is REQUIRED?
FALSE!
The program is totally optional! You can work with your Peer Mentor as you need them! They are here to be your guide, friend, and help you with those lingering college questions!
MYTH #3
Peer Mentor Program is just like the sit down style of Learning Groups?
FALSE!
Each Peer Mentor relationship is completely customized! You get help with whatever topics you want! Need someone to go to events with? Maybe you’re looking for a study partner. Have questions about higher level courses? Your Peer Mentor is here to help!
