Welcome to the Peer Mentor Program!

The Peer Mentor Program is a way for current Ohlone College students to connect with prospective students, their families, and community members. Peer Mentors also help new students transition to Ohlone through campus events and serving as resources to first-year students. Since the program began in 1999, Mentors have played a vital role in attracting new students to Ohlone College.

Here’s what past Peer Mentors have said about our program:

"The Peer Mentor Program is dedicated to helping and guiding students (especially incoming freshman) make the difficult and sometimes overwhelming transition into college. We are students helping other students. "

"The Peer Mentor Program has the power to boost anyone's confidence. It can transform you into a new person that will amaze even yourself and it can help you to succeed. "

"The Peer Mentor Program provides the opportunity for incoming students to interact with students that they will be sharing an academic and communal environment with."

"The Peer Mentor Program can help you understand how much you can accomplish in college. All of us peer mentors will use our passions to assist you in your success."

"I feel that the Peer Mentor Program has given me an opportunity to help other students, as well as grow as a person. It greatly helps students hear from fellow students who have been successful at Ohlone."
