Become a mentor in 2014 Student Mentor Program
What do mentors do?
Mentors act as hosts and guides for new students on the first day of O week and also meet with them several times during first semester to help them settle into study at JCU.
Why be a mentor?
It is a great opportunity both to help new students and to develop your communication and leadership skills. Other benefits of being a mentor include an official JCU certificate of appreciation signed by the Vice-Chancellor, a stylish mentor t-shirt, free tea and coffee if mentors help students in the Learning Centre, and lots of other freebies.
Do I need to be top of the class?
To be a mentor you do not need to be an academic genius but you should be conscientious in your studies and passing all your subjects. It also helps if you enjoy helping your fellow students.
When will I be needed ?
Training for mentors on the Townsville campus will take place on Friday 14th February from 9-3pm. The welcome day in O week for the Faculties of Law Business and Creative Arts and Arts Education and Social Sciences will be on Monday 17 February 2013. The other two faculties – Science and Engineering and Medicine, Health and Molecular Sciences will have their welcome on Tuesday 18 February.
