Peer Leadership

Are you a senior student who wants to help new students transition to university life and empower them to enhance their academic, social and personal goals – while also gaining an enriching leadership experience for yourself? The Peer Mentor program is always looking for dedicated volunteers to answer questions and offer guidance. You’ll become a trained, on-campus resource and have the opportunity to share your experiences as a first-year student while you make this great contribution to life at York.
