[PAST EVENT] SPAN Program Mentor Recruitment

March 15, 2011 - March 25, 2011
Center for Student Diversity
Do you remember what it's like to be a new student, trying to find your way? Looking for your niche? Did anyone extend a helping hand? Now you can be the helping hand that SPANs the gap from being a new student to being a member of the Tribe! Become a peer mentor for the SPAN program!

SPAN mentors will be paired with first-year students from under-served and underrepresented diverse populations to help them transition and succeed at William & Mary.

SPAN is an opportunity for students who feel their transition to college may benefit from connecting with other students based on a shared experience or identity, such as:
- Students of color or multiracial students
- Students from minority faith backgrounds (e.g. Muslim, Hindu, Jewish, Buddhist, etc)
- Students who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, and/or transgender
- Students with disabilities

Being a mentor doesn't take a lot of time. More importantly it takes a caring heart, the willingness to extend yourself, and the commitment to helping students of color, religiously diverse students, LGBTQ students, students with disabilities, or any students from diverse backgrounds find their niche at W&M!
