The Office of International Education will be continuing our CONNECT mentorship program for new international students this Fall 2016 semester. We would like to provide new international students with a mentor for their first semester at our colleges.
We welcome ALL PERALTA STUDENTS, FACULTY, STAFF AND ADMINISTRATORS to apply to be a mentor for a new international student. Here is a link to our application to become a mentor: http://web.peralta.edu/international/mentorship-application/

The expectations of being a mentor can be found here: http://web.peralta.edu/international/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/Mentor-Expectations.docx
We will be having a kickoff event on September 9th where students can meet their mentors and learn other valuable information about the program as well.
