What is the Peer Mentoring Program?
The program, housed in the Counseling and Academic Advising Center, and funded by the Carl D. Perkins Program, was created to give students of LCCC a unique place where they can go for guidance, assistance, information and experience. What makes the Peer Mentoring Program different from other areas of resources on campus is that the mentors are current LCCC students who are dedicated to helping other LCCC students in a variety of ways.
All mentors are trained in various areas of campus life, communication, decision making, listening and so much more, but the one thing that they bring to the students of LCCC is something that cannot be taught: their own experiences, both at LCCC, and in the world. These students are here to gladly share their stories and experiences, and to help students get on a path that is comfortable for them that can lead to success and fun at LCCC.
Mentors are here to help students get involved around campus, answer questions about academics, study habits, etc., or simply, just to listen.
