    Using “Mentoring Programs: A Framework to Inform Program Development, Research, and Evaluation” (2006) I realized that the term “peer mentoring” has been used to describe a variety of different things, such as cross-age peer mentoring, peer tutoring, and peer education to name a few (Karcher et al., 2006, p. 712). Dictionary.com defines the word peer as: “a person who is equal to another in abilities, qualifications, age, background, and social status.” It also defines the word mentor as: “1) A wise and trusted counselor or teacher. 2) An influential senior sponsor or supporter” (n.d.).

    In the beginning, Peer Mentoring was a program at my high school that I scoffed at and found to be rather idealistic. The thought that I could actually impact the life of somebody on campus seemed rather far fetched, I was so accustomed to creating a change to those who seemed abstract to me that I could not grasp the ideology of mentoring someone. However, due to my curiosity to see if it was an actual possibility, I signed up. What I expected were a plethora of mood and rambunctious teenagers…

    A peer mentor is defined as a person who uses their resources to support, encourage and inform someone. Going into this semester, I was unaware that I would be mentoring another student and thus doubted my abilities. Although I was excited to become a mentor, I questioned whether I would truly be able to make a difference in someone’s life. The difference that I wanted to make could be as simple as helping someone ace a test, but the news of mentoring threw me off track. Nonetheless, I gathered…

    Critical Analysis on Cross- Age Peer Mentoring Mentoring is beneficial to both mentors and mentees. A type of mentoring that strongly suggests this is Cross- Age Peer Mentoring. According to the Handbook of Youth Mentoring, the definition of cross-age peer mentoring is “only when there are two or more years’ difference between the mentor and the mentee… and the mentor is indeed older (and presumably wiser and more mature) than the mentee” (234). The handbook specifies that peer mentors “must by…

    I cannot imagine that time has flown so fast. It seems like yesterday when I was first hired in summer quarter to be a Peer Mentor. I used to have a lot of imagination about what it would be, and how I would react with my mentees when I officially become a Peer Mentor. This is also my first time to be a Peer Mentor, so I got super excited. However, everything is not like what it seems. When I first received my cohort assignment email said that I would be a Peer Mentor for IESL level 1 and 2, I…

    Peer Mentoring Experience I had the pleasure of mentoring Nicole Boodhansingh, a freshman majoring in Dietetics. Our first initial meeting was at the meet and greet event held in Health South.
