The PAP is designed to facilitate an on-going mentoring relationship among students who stand in as mentees and mentors to positively influence their peers to set life-long goals, choose life-long careers in fashion and other choices.
Student mentees who sign-up for the PAP will be paired with student mentors who will guide them through academic challenges in college and future professional choices and decisions.
A Peer Advising Fellow (PAF) is a sophomore, junior, or senior at the College who has been specially selected and trained to offer advice and assistance throughout students’ first year at JACCD.
PAFs are assigned to a specific entryway. The student mentors are individuals who are seniors and willing and able to support the college lives of freshmen.
The mentor and the mentee are connected/paired formally by JACCD. PAFs are part of the first-year advising network each incoming student receives, working in conjunction with the academic adviser and the Student Affairs office to connect students with campus resources and empower them to make the most of their college experience.
