Taking Mentoring to New Heights!

The LEAD Mentors Program is comprised of student leaders within the Odyssey Peer Mentoring Program who lead, train, and facilitate leadership and skill development for Peer Mentors while assisting in meaningful engagement activities for Mentees. LEAD Mentors facilitate small groups meetings throughout the semester focused on developing mentoring skills, sharing impactful strategies and building a strong network of student leaders on campus. LEAD Mentors engage program Mentees with community events, socials, and challenges. LEAD Mentors also are involved in service projects focused on building a strong community and promoting mentorship in the external community. LEAD Mentors will be working with the program to advance the Mentoring Curriculum, which will consist of developmental monthly meetings, events, activities and challenges that participating program Peer Mentors and Mentees will be working in throughout the Fall and Spring Semester.
