What our peer mentors say...

"The program was very well-organised with direct and consistent lines of communications between the program organisers and mentors. This ensured that all mentors understood their role and responsibilities and that we had strong levels of support to assist mentees with both general and specific course-related questions."

"...the program was extremely beneficial in helping me to develop a greater sense of confidence in my ability to support others and communicate effectively and with empathy."

  • CRIM2042

  • SOSS1000

Become a Mentor

Do you have a passion and drive in helping other students? Are you looking to develop leadership, communication and interpersonal skills? CrimSoc encourages you to join our Peer Mentoring Program. The Program aims to help younger students navigating through coursework and allows mentors to put their criminology knowledge into practice. As a peer mentor you will have the opportunity and responsibility to lead and guide first and/ or second year students in courses you have previously studied.

This initiative requires approximately one to two hours of your time per week.

 

Intakes are based on the UNSW trimester system and the application for Mentors commences near the start of each term, every term. You can keep updated about these deadlines by following our social media accounts.
