How to become a Student Mentor

Thank you for your interest in the JCU Student Mentor Program.

We are currently accepting applications from students who are interested in joining the Student Mentor Program in SP1, 2020, which will also be JCU’s 50th birthday.   Students are encouraged to apply for this important volunteer program that helps new students succeed in their studies while enhancing your employability skills.  The mentor community is made up of vibrant, dynamic, supportive students who are passionate about helping students reach their academic and personal goals.  The commitment is not onerous and involves attendance at a training day, O Week Course Welcome Day, and Week 2 Regroup, as well as sending periodic emails across the study period.

We are looking for applicants who have:

  • Excellent interpersonal skills
  • Genuine interest in helping new students succeed
  • Minimum overall GPA of 5.0 to demonstrate sound study strategies
  • Completed all their first year subjects, or will have completed them before SP1, 2020

Applications will close on Friday 27 September, 2019.
