Learn more about Peer-to-Peer Mentoring!
DPS Peer-to-Peer Mentoring is a new program that allows students to actively help each other become college and career ready. Council Members will recruit upperclassman students (11th & 12th) to mentor a group of 2 younger mentee students. We believe this will create an atmosphere of students holding other students accountable for their work.
Freshmen and Sophomores - Connect with a Mentor
Are you coming into high school worried about fitting in or making friends?
Our peer-to-peer mentoring program will help you get settled into high school by partnering you with an upperclassman. The mentors are here to make sure you have a good high school experience as well as prepare you to be college or career ready. With the help of your mentor, you can have an easy transition to high school and eventually have a chance to become a upperclassman mentor yourself.
