Peer Mentors

Discover support through peer mentors

Jamestown Community College’s peer mentoring program, Peer2Peer, supports and guides you as you adjust to college life. Incoming freshmen are paired with sophomores, and together you’ll navigate your first semester at JCC.

A peer mentor can help you connect with campus services and resources, develop better time management strategies, become familiar with JCC technology, and encourage you to stay on track and achieve your academic goals.

Mentors: If you’ve attended JCC for at least two semesters, enjoy helping others, and have a grade point average of 3.0 or higher, consider becoming a peer mentor at JCC. In this paid position, you'll be an orientation leader in the summer and work with your mentees during the academic year.
