From Katie Dufault from the Academic Success Center:
The Academic Success Center will be piloting a Peer Success Coaching program in the fall, and we are looking to hire some of your excellent students as our coaches! I’ve attached an ad for the position and a position description- please feel free to share these with your students who are interested in a paid student leadership position with flexible hours and opportunities to gain experience in 1-on-1 communication, peer accountability, and academic/life skills development.
The goal of the Peer Success Coaching program is to offer students peer support as they transition into college and the rigorous academic environment at Purdue. Peer Success Coaching provides students with a proactive option for achieving success in and out of the classroom through one-one-one conversations, reflection, and accountability. Coaching sessions allow students to reflect on topics such as time management, study habits, goal setting, test preparation, and university opportunities and connections then create action plans. Coaches will facilitate these sessions, serve as role models, and potentially support other success initiatives.
For more Information about the position or the program, please contact Katie Dufault at firstname.lastname@example.org or (765) 494-8720. Details, including the position description, will also be updated online at: http://www.purdue.edu/studentsuccess/academic/consultation/apptform.html
