Mentor of the Moment
What is the Mentor of the Moment at Peer Jacks?
Mentor of the Moment is a mentor recognition program that aims to openly acknowledge and express appreciation for a peer mentor’s contributions to Peer Jacks Mentoring. This recognition will rotate as needed, when the professional staff feels that a mentor or mentors have stood out above and beyond the rest for their work with the program. See below for the current Mentor of the Moment, as well as an archive of former mentors who have been recognized.
