TRIO Student Support Services Peer Mentor (Summer Bridge)


University of Alaska System


TRIO Student Support Services (SSS) is dedicated to student success and assisting students in navigating college. SSS is hiring five dedicated students to serve as Peer Mentors for the TRIO Summer Bridge Program (June - July 2024), with the potential to continue with TRIO SSS during the 2024-2025 academic year. TRIO SSS Peer Mentors must be self-motivated, work well independently and as a part of a team, have great social skills, and be comfortable working with a diverse student population.


The TRIO SSS Summer Bridge program is designed to provide first-time freshmen with the necessary skills and support to transition successfully into college at UAA.

TRIO SSS Peer mentors help summer bridge students identify and access UAA resources, provide academic support, develop and implement SSS extra-curricular activities, model successful student behaviors, and provide group and individual coaching and support.
