Peer Mentoring Request

  • About Peer Mentoring

    The NET offers peer mentoring for employees and students. Mentors are often referred to as coaches, guides, or tutors. Our student peer mentoring program is called D.R.E.A.M., which stands for Developing Responsibility, Empowerment, and Achievement through Mentoring. We have both paid and volunteer mentors on staff in a variety of subject areas and skill sets. If we do not currently have a mentor in the subject you need, then we'll recruit one!
  • How do you prefer to meet with your mentor?
  • Tell us WHEN you are available to meet with a mentor.
  • If you want to work with a specific mentor, please tell us which mentor you prefer.

  • About the selection process

    The NET is accountable to the college for ensuring a strong D.R.E.A.M. Peer Mentoring program wherein students find themselves supported academically, whether they are mentors or mentees. For this reason, the NET commits to provide mentors with regular opportunities for training that would be relevant to their work with students. The NET also commits to a screening process for its mentors before placing them in the center's active schedule. Students must be in "good standing" at the college and must have earned an A or a B at an accredited college or university in the subject area of specialization for mentoring. Student mentors must participate in a mentoring orientation conducted by the D.R.E.A.M. Peer Mentor staff. Student mentors do not receive monetary compensation for their volunteer work; however, mentors do receive credit for their service to the college in the form of a certificate of recognition, service awards, and in letters of recommendation (upon request and when appropriate). Mentors build important interpersonal and metacognitive skills while helping others by learning to listen carefully, think critically, respond clearly, and explain completely. Mentoring is, for many, its own reward; when a mentor sees the mentee achieve success, or when a mentee expresses gratitude for the help that was received, the mentor knows that every second of time invested has been worthwhile.
