Peer mentors form the foundational structure for student success in Project FOCUS. Primary responsibilities include attending courses with students, assisting with homework, engaging and encouraging social opportunities, and participating in campus activities, clubs and events. Although useful, no prior experience in working with students with intellectual disabilities is required. All Peer Mentors will receive orientation, foundations training before supporting students. A minimum of 10 hours a week availability is required to qualify for an internship position.
