CRHS Senior Mentors lead online discussion on peer mentoring

Two Senior Mentors from the Cumberland Regional High School (CRHS) Freshman Seminar/Senior Mentor program, Jackeline Negron and Vincent Ermilio, recently led an online discussion connecting students from CRHS with South Anchorage High School in Alaska and school districts in other states including Virginia, Vermont, Connecticut, Hawaii, and New York.

The discussion focused on student experiences as peer mentors and featured topics including what students do to develop as mentors, how students can prepare for diversity between peer mentors and mentees, and how students can strengthen their mentor teams. 

The Freshman Seminar/Senior Mentoring program at Cumberland Regional High School partners at-risk ninth-graders with role model Senior Mentors during and outside of class time to support the challenging transition to high school. The credit-bearing course focuses on academic support, life skills, organization, time management, public speaking, and abilities related to social and emotional learning. 

Another online discussion will be held in weeks to come to continue the conversation. Cumberland Regional applauds the Senior Mentors as well as Freshman Seminar/Senior Mentor course leaders Terence Johnson, Jaime MacEwen, and Matt Lawrence-Evans for their diligent work supporting student success through the program.
