ELEVATE Peer Mentoring Program

Grand View’s ELEVATE Peer Mentoring Program will help you be successful in college! We will pair you with a current GV student who will help guide and support you as you make the move from high school to college. They will help you learn good study habits, meet new people and get involved in campus activities.

What is Peer Mentoring?

Peer mentoring is a process where two people of similar ages and experiences help each other grow. It’s an informal, but structured relationship that will give you someone to lean on and trust as you begin college. Your mentor will help guide and encourage you and will be a new Grand View friend.
