Upper division students in the Student Support Services Program are selected to serve as peer mentors to freshmen and transfer students. Peer mentors help students navigate many aspects of college life – everything from registration to extracurricular activities.
Mentors play an essential role in SSSP. By fostering supportive relationships with mentees, mentors help students successfully transition to academic and extracurricular life at City College. In the course of encouraging mentees to achieve their goals, mentors develop their own interpersonal and leadership skills.
