With a little help from my friends....

Mentorship programs pair more experienced students with less experienced students, creating a supportive relationship. Online discussion forums give students the opportunity to ask questions, share resources, and work together to produce solutions.

By providing a platform for students to collaborate and learn from each other, peer-to-peer support can aid students in an academic setting by boosting their confidence, motivation, and understanding of the material.

Therefore, peer-to-peer support can begin at any time in an academic setting and should be available from the beginning of the program.

When it comes to mentoring in a peer-to-peer support program:

1. Listen and encourage. A mentor should provide a safe and supportive space for students to express their thoughts and feelings.

2. Provide guidance. A mentor should offer advice, share experiences, and provide resources to help mentees develop their skills.

3. Model positive behavior.

4. Celebrate achievements!
