Peer Mentor Programs

About Peer Mentors

Clark College Peer Mentor Programs provide an opportunity for students to help others connect to Clark College and community resources, navigate the college, and work toward academic goals. Peer mentors enjoy working with people, have a wide range of experiences at Clark College and a willingness to share those experiences with current and prospective students.

Student Success Peer Mentor Program

The goal of Student Success Programs (SSP) is to support the retention, learning and success of all Clark College students. SSP Peer Mentors outreach to students who receive Academic Early Warning alerts and those affected by the Academic Standards Policy, and they also promote SSP services through workshops, classrooms visits, and college and department events. Peer Mentors in this role are encouraged to meet with students one-on-one to offer support, advice and resources.

Transitions Peer Mentor Program

The goal of the Transitions Peer Mentor Program is to support the success of Transitional Studies Students. They focus on students engaged in High School 21+, English as a Second Language, GED, and students transitioning into I-BEST and first quarter college-level classes. Transitional Studies Peer Mentors perform outreach to students who receive Academic Early Warning alerts, and participate in department and college events to share their knowledge of campus and community resources with others.

Multicultural Student Affairs Peer Mentor Program

The goal of the Multicultural Student Affairs (MSA) Peer Mentor Program is to support the learning and retention of all Clark College students. They help to create a welcoming environment in the Office of Diversity and Equity (ODE) while providing outreach to students who receive Academic Early Warning alerts, directing students to resources, offering support and guidance, and participating in department and college events. MSA Peer Mentors assist in fulfilling the college's mission to provide a safe learning environment for students of diverse identities.

The International Peer Mentor Program

The goal of the International Peer Mentor Program is to connect new international students with current Clark College students to help international students to Clark College. This volunteer opportunity to build important intercultural leadership skills! For more information, please see the Office of International Programs in GHL 216.

Contacting Peer Mentors

Sometimes talking to a Clark College student who has been trained in assisting peers in accessing campus resources can be helpful. Peer Mentors are Clark students who are knowledgeable about how to maximize your success!
