Who can join this Peer Mentoring Program?

The EcoSoc Peer Mentoring Program is open to all first year Economics students.

Program description

EcoSoc’s Peer Mentoring Program lays the foundation for new students to join an emerging community and become a part of a growing support network. Our Peer Mentoring Program is designed to equip students with the necessary knowledge and information to flourish through a social environment that promotes student engagement and involvement during the earliest stages of uni life.

We understand that first year is an exciting time for change and growth and our weekly 1-hour sessions will have you placed in a group of up to 8 other mentees with 2 mentors to guide you through your first 6 weeks of uni.

Join EcoSoc’s Peer Mentoring Program! Make new friends, enter a flourishing community, join a growing support network and most importantly, become INDEPENDENT.
