Coach Training for new mentors will be held during Coach Week, March 27th-March 31st. Reserve your spot!
AC faculty and staff mentors assist their first year students as they transition to college life, provide them with guidance and advice, and ultimately help make their college experience more successful and satisfying. All ACE scholarship recipients and 2016 Caprock graduates are automatically matched with a supportive faculty or staff member who serves as a campus point person to help these students navigate campus and get their questions answered.
Your role is simple - you share your phone number with an incoming first year student and touch base a number of times during the first six weeks of college. You aren't expected to know all the answers. As a mentor, you may direct your student to campus resources, make them aware of services, or introduce them to the faculty or staff member in the best position to help. Every mentoring relationship is different, and you are empowered to develop a dynamic that works for you and your student.
Here's what our Coaches said they gained from their participation:
