Summer Mentor

All Elon Academy peer mentors are current college students or recent alumni who are Elon University students and/or Elon Academy college scholars. Elon Academy peer mentors serve as role models for Elon Academy scholars (HS students) through interaction inside and outside of the classroom.  For the 2021 two-week-day summer program, Elon Academy mentors will serve as peer group leaders, teaching assistants in an academic seminar and other engaging aspects of the Elon Academy. In our newly designed summer program, the role of the peer mentor is central to our work with the HS students.  You would be assigned a peer group to lead for the entire 2 weeks.  This is an important opportunity for you to develop deep relationships with these near-peers and to have a substantial impact on their lives.
