Peer Mentor Program
Peer Mentor Application
Recruting for our next cohort will begin in September of 2016!
PEER MENTORS ARE:
Teens, 16-17 years of age, who are willing to:
- Provide mentorship for youth (11-14 years of age).
- Learn about outdoor and experiential education and share their knowledge with the mentees!
- Foster a supportive environment for the mentor team, the mentees, staff, and friends in our community.
- Complete monthly trainings and commit to at least one year as a mentor (a minimum of 52 hours per year).
HOW IT WORKS:
Mentors receive monthly training to help them learn and grow into their role as peer mentors. Mentors are matched with younger B.E.A.R. participants depending on their availability and interests and are asked to support mentees at least 4 hours every month for the duration of one year (52 hours of service).
