Full Description
Apply to be a Peer Mentor

Do you remember what it's like to be a new student, trying to find your way? Looking for your niche? Did anyone extend a helping hand? Now you can be the helping hand that SPANs the gap from being a new student to being a member of the Tribe! Become a peer mentor for the SPAN program!

What does it take?
It doesn't take a lot of time. More importantly it takes a caring heart, the willingness to extend yourself, and the commitment to helping students of color, religiously diverse students, LGBTQ students, students with disabilities, or any students from diverse backgrounds find their niche at W&M!
