Workshop: The Peer Mentor’s In-Between Space: Investing in Your Own Mentoring While Growing Others
Designed for undergraduates, this workshop will help peer mentors to learn more about ways to leverage mentoring for their own development, and strategies to expand their mentoring skillset when engaging their peers. Peer mentors face the challenge of being in an “in-between” space, where they are supporting the growth of others while still needing guidance and support themselves. In this session, we will create (or revisit) your mentoring plan, and identify a set of action steps that can help you to make the most of the mentoring you have available (and create some new opportunities as well). In addition, we will strategize about a range of challenges we may face in the course of mentoring peers that can help you to improve your experience of being a peer mentor.
