Academic Cohort Mentoring Program
Requirements for Mentors
Mentors must be registered, full-time juniors or seniors at Johns Hopkins University, or graduate students at Johns Hopkins University who also earned a bachelor’s degree here.
Mentors work both in small groups and one-on-one with freshmen who have expressed interest in their major. They focus on cultivating global academic skills (e.g. time management, note-taking, reading and textbook use, etc.) and well as skills specific to growth and achievement within the major. As a Mentor, you must commit to employment for the full duration of the semester, since the freshmen in your group will be counting on you for advice and support throughout their first term at Hopkins.
To be eligible to serve as a Mentor, a student must be in good academic standing and must have effective study skills, organizational skills, and the desire to help other students.
How to Apply
Applications for new Mentors are accepted during Spring and Summer semesters each year, though Spring application is recommended. Student registration and Mentor assignment occurs during the Summer. If demand exists, new applications will also be accepted during Fall semester as well.
To apply, please visit the Student Employment website and complete the online application for job #8889. The job application for "Mentor" can be found under the Mentor category.
