This system of “giving back” fosters a supportive environment for learning by allowing mentors to help mentees understand the academic and social support systems available to them at Wesley College. Mentors work to develop a strong bond with mentees by serving as resources of academic, social and cultural information, assistance and support.
P.U.L.S.E. mentors draw on their own experiences, interests, and perspectives to provide friendship and guidance to hel first-year students transition more successfully. It’s an exciting and important responsibility. As a mentor you will not only help a first-year student; you’ll be part of the mentoring program community and building relationships with your Wesley College peers.
P.U.L.S.E. mentees will benefit from this program in many ways. The mentoring program exposes mentees to a positive role model and helps smooth the transition of the first year student from high school to college. Mentees also learn the importance of setting personal, social, academic, and professional goals in order into a successful college student. It is our hope that this program encourages social and emotional growth and fosters the attitude of confidence and self-esteem.
