The PeerMentor Program offered by LifeSmart Education (LSE) is dedicated to guiding teenagers from underprivileged communities. Instead of typical adult-to-teen mentoring, this program focuses on providing peer-to-peer support.
Our mentors will work with teens who are one to four years younger than they are. By listening to mentees and sharing life experiences, PeerMentors can provide support as friends.
Lifesmart Education is a nonprofit based in Ohio dedicated to helping under-resourced youth. We offer various programs to help kids gain life management skills. Through our programs, we foster self-motivation and determination to help students become self-reliant.
Any student between the ages of 12 and 22 can become a PeerMentor. You do not need to excel in academia or sports; rather we look for mentors who have a positive outlook, are confident, and want to help others. We want mentors who use their optimism and kindheartedness to help other students who may not be in a good situation.
LSE is a trusted nonprofit organization that has helped underprivileged kids since 2014.
PeerMentors at LifeSmart Education will receive guidance on mentoring from our expert team of advisors. They will also be there to answer any questions PeerMentors may have. Advisors will be available to give personal and updated support as mentors continue their work.
As a mentor, you will communicate with the student through the LSE team. We will ensure privacy on both ends for safety.
Although the program is a minimum 3-month program, we hope you continue your PeerMentor journey with us. Upon completion of the program, PeerMentors will receive an evaluation and certificate of completion. We can also provide a personalized letter of recommendation.
To apply, send us a personalized statement to [email protected] . Please write a bit about yourself, such as your name, age, and why you want to be a mentor. Write about your education (such as your major or other academic specialties), the types of social committees or campaigns you are involved in, any relevant experiences, and your passions in relation to this program.
Examples of personal statements are shown below.
After you submit this statement, we will send you an email with one or two personalized tasks, such as a presentation. Upon completion, we will then arrange training sessions for you.
