Teaching through peer mentoring
Student Mentor, Go College Mentor Program (Former Employee) – Erie, PA – July 11, 2014
A typical day at Go College consisted of tutoring students, working alongside teachers and councilors, running errands, assisting in planning trips for the students, and running summer camps kept us busy. Each student who worked for the Go College program were students from the same college and made it easy for everyone to get along and find a commonality. This job out of my many through college taught me almost as much as college had itself. The school I worked at was an inner city school that had violence, gang fights, poverty, along with many students barely passing classes. It taught me to be more patient and a whole new perspective on school and how other people were raised. It was quite a challenge some days trying to figure out how to get some kids to pass or to convince others why college is important, but it gave me as much as I put into it. I truly enjoyed my experience working at this facility.
