Student Success Peer Coaching
What is the Peer Coaching Program?
The peer coaching program is a free service to current Westmont students that provides a space to seek peer support and guidance. Through private, personalized coaching sessions, students will receive assistance in navigating their college experience. Coaches work with students to identify goals, connect to resources, and learn new life and academic skills.
Who are Peer Coaches?
Peer Coaches are academically, socially, and emotionally mature Westmont students with a passion for helping others. In addition to their own life experience, they have been trained to help their peers navigate challenges of the college experience, both inside and outside the classroom.
