Fontaine Mentor Programs: Peer Mentor Program

The Fontaine Peer Mentor Program matches first-year students with a trained student mentor for a full academic year. Throughout this year, students will engage with monthly wellness workshops, attend social events off-campus, and check-in regularly with their mentors.

Our monthly wellness skills are:

  • Finding Identity
  • Failing Up
  • Healthy Relationships
  • Goal Setting
  • Self-compassion
  • Equitable Wellness

Program Logistics

The Commitment: Peer Mentors

Our peer mentors are selected in the spring. The following fall, each mentor is assigned a small group of 3-4 incoming students to work with for the full academic year.

Mentor responsibilities each month include:

  • Attending 90-minute wellness workshop led by Health Promotion staff;
  • Joining the whole program for an end-of-month social event;
  • Two in-person check-ins with your small group;
  • Brief written reflection

The Commitment: Peer Mentees

Mentees are expected to attend the monthly wellness workshop at the start of the month, join in for the program-wide social event at the end of the month, and check-in with their mentor and small group in between.
