THE MBSSA PEER MENTORING PROGRAM IS BACK THIS SEMESTER 1 2020!
This program is designed as a bridge to connect current students with incoming students and eventually help them transit into life in MBS. Through casual catch up and weekly activities, incoming students (mentees) will have the chance to learn from current students (mentors) and develop their own understanding of MBS life, study tips, career development opportunities and many more. For current students, this program allows them to reflect back on their study experience in MBS and develop their mentoring skills.
Additionally, mentors receive a Certificate of Appreciation and will be able to direct dedicated hours towards the Leadership in Communities Award.
