Peer Mentorship Program

The Peer Mentorship Program is an initiative to promote retention within the Early Childhood Special Education major, offer support to potential teacher candidates, and provide preemptive training for teacher candidates set to embark on careers in education. In this program, junior and senior level students who have been accepted into the Teacher Preparation Program will offer guidance and support to freshmen and sophomore education majors who plan to apply to the program. Mentors must be nominated by faculty and staff members at Middle Georgia State University and will go through an interview and training process before their service. Mentors will be able add their service to future résumés, network, and engage with fellow students in a school that spans five campuses.
