Is Mentoring for me and, if so, how do I become a Mentor?
If you remember how it felt to be a first year student and found coming to University a bit daunting then mentoring is for you. You can help 1st year and new students engage with academic and social activities.
If you are interested please fill out the application form at: https://vovici.com/wsb.dll/s/2e2cg555. We will be closing the application on Friday 28th March this year as we would like to meet all prospective mentors for an hour on 4th April. All volunteers will be required to confirm their place on the 4th April and therefore we will not be accepting volunteers after that date.
The aim of the Mentoring Programme in NUI Galway is to integrate students to University life (socially and academically) as quickly and easily as possible.
