Peer Mentor Program

About the Peer Mentor Program

The Vanier peer mentors are successful upper-level students from Vanier affiliated programs who are trained to successfully integrate incoming students to York University and help all students academically, while building the academic skills they need to succeed in university. What differentiates this program from other such help is that a fellow student, or in other words, a peer, is assisting the student in need. Consequently, the peer mentor acts as the ideal intermediary between students and university success as opposed to other entities, and therein lies the value of the peer mentor program.
