Here’s what some students have to say!
“Being a peer mentor was such a positive experience for both my mentee and I. Meeting with my mentee, Hannah, every month was a great way for both of us to reflect upon our lives each month. It allowed us to compare and contrast lifestyles. We bonded over the things that we did similarly, and learned to offer and accept advice about the things that we did differently. I think my mentee appreciatedhaving an older student who was ale to provide an outlook into her upcoming school years, and I appreciated having a mentee to keep me accountable throughout the year. Through the Fruved Peer Mentor Program, I was able to learn and implement healthy living habits and expand my friend circle, all while building my resume!”
