Passage program Mentor Program
Mentoring is one of the most effective retention strategies in higher education. This is particularly true with first generation, low-income, and underrepresented students.
Mentoring is a process by which an experienced person provides advice, support and encouragement to a less experienced person. The mentor leads through guidance and example. As a mentor you provide encouragement and support and play a valuable role in being a good listener.
The mentee will gain insight from the sharing of your own life experiences both positive and negative. As a result of this relationship, the mentee will gain greater self-confidence, self-esteem, and access to networks and resources.
The mentee will learn a code of behavior, appropriate in higher education and finally learn to create a long term vision for their lives that is fully supported.
