Peer Mentoring with the REACH Program

The REACH Program is seeking volunteer mentors to assist students in the program with the transitions and experiences of college. Mentors aid in providing a “true college experience” for students by sharing time, knowledge, and experiences with their peers. Mentors are role models, supporters, and friends! Interactions can take place on weekdays or weekends, virtually and in-person, and can be anything you would typically do with friends or for school based on your interests. Commit to a short amount of time each week and start building a truly valuable relationship!

Interested students can contact Arianne Bauserman, Mentor Coordinator, at bausermanam@cofc.edu with questions or download a Mentor Information form here.

*Note: Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, all in-person interactions must be in compliance with the College of Charleston’s and City of Charleston’s recommendations and policies.
