G20A - GEAR Up for Mentorship! A Training Session for Faculty and Staff

10:00 - 11:30 AM

GEAR mentors help first-generation college students who might have questions about personal, career, financial and academic issues respond to the challenges of college through a year-long mentor-mentee relationship. Mentors will help students locate resources on campus and within the community to address these questions. This workshop will review the expectations of the program and describe the role of the mentors. Upon completion of the training workshop, participants can be paired with a student who has indicated interest in having a mentor. The workshop will include information sharing, group discussions and role playing to help participants prepare for the role of mentor.
