    C-STEP Peer Mentoring Program

    What it Means to Serve as a C-STEP Peer Mentor

    Serving as a peer mentor to C-STEP students is both a privilege and a responsibility.  It is a privilege because you serve as a role model for a tremendously talented group of community college transfer students who have demonstrated remarkable tenacity and resilience in their journey to Carolina.  It is a responsibility because you are dedicating yourself to helping these junior transfer students out of a genuine concern for their success and well-being.  Your goal is to help each of your mentees adjust to the academic and social atmosphere at Carolina during their first year at UNC.

    The qualities of a successful C-STEP Peer Mentor are:

    1. Enthusiastic commitment to the goals of the program
    2. Excellent communication skills
    3. Maturity, exhibited by sound judgment and common sense
    4. Flexibility and a sense of humor
