Build your resume while helping fellow students

AUM’s Experiential Education & Engagement Center (EEEC) is seeking students interested in becoming Peer Mentors for the 2022-23 school year. Peer Mentors are needed for all courses and subject areas, and will receive $10-per-hour as part-time student workers.

Peer Mentors work in the classrooms of courses they have successfully completed and help current students navigate the subject matter through advice and support. Think of it as being a teaching assistant without the responsibility of grading assignments.
