Peer Mentor Program

PHSC Peer Mentor Kevin CurtisStudent Support

Peer mentors support the student body through the promotion of PHSC resources in order to increase retention as well as report student feedback to the coordinator of retention. They foster growth and empower students to take advantage of the support systems available at PHSC. Peer mentors connect students to campus accommodations and provide a social platform for students to voice their thoughts.

Peer mentors are part of a dynamic group of students who reach out to the student body through phone calls and their friendly, approachable, positive presence on campus. Peer mentors serve as a vital link between the College and the questions, concerns and feedback of its students.

Becoming a Peer Mentor

Following application to the Peer Mentor program, chosen representatives will learn about the College and receive training. Mentors also receive a PHSC polo shirt embroidered with the peer mentor logo. All mentors will receive up to an $800 stipend ($400 per term) for a one-year term.

If you have a 3.0 or higher PHSC grade point average, you qualify to apply for the program. In addition to the academic qualifications, peer mentors will be required to maintain a 3.0 or higher grade point average and enrollment in a minimum of six hours in fall (term I) and spring (term II) for the year. Peer mentors will also be required to devote a minimum of 10 hours per week (with flexibility in schedule as needed) and must be able to provide their own transportation for duties.

Application information for the next peer mentor program will be available in May, 2015. If you have any questions regarding the program, please contact the coordinator of retention.
