First in the Family Fridays
First in the Family Peer – Mentor Program holds all of our Learning (academic skills), Leadership (out of the classroom), Social (fun!), and Alumni (professional and career development) events on select Fridays 2–4 p.m., or 4–6 p.m., locations to be announced. Registered Mentees provide a gmail address and have access to a Google Calendar of all of our events planned for the year. Whether or not you are a Registered Mentee in First in the Family Peer – Mentor Program, all students must register to attend our events. We are striving to create an inclusive and accessible program. From time to time we offer light refreshments, and we do our best to make appropriate arrangements in response to accessibility and other accommodation requests.
