Federal Work-Study Position---WEST WINDSOR---DREAM Program 

JOB DESCRIPTION: PEER MENTOR 

The DREAM program, under the the Center for Inclusion, Transition and Accessibility, has opportunities for work study students to be peer mentors for our DREAM students. The DREAM program supports students with intellectual disabilities who are seeking to enhance their academic, personal and vocational skills through a college experience. Peer mentors support our DREAM students academically by attending classes with them to help them with note taking and other class activities, providing homework help and developing students’ study skills. 

With the current expanded use of remote learning, mentors are granted online access to join virtual classes with students and encouraged to participate in video or phone sessions to further assist in homework help and tutoring. 

Classes that are taught through distance learning platforms will require mentors to join the class sessions virtually with the student. The platform of the virtual class will primarily be through Blackboard and access to the class will be given to the mentor. This will allow them to easily reference course content and be able to access student assignments. 

  Our mentors receive initial training before the start of the semester, as well as on-going training and support throughout the semester.     This is a great opportunity for work study students develop leadership and interpersonal skills while receiving training and support from professionals throughout the semester. Mentoring assignments are during the day, Monday through Friday and are scheduled based on the work study student’s schedule.     For more information, please contact:
