Want to meet new people and boost your employability? Apply now for the 2021 Health Peer Mentor Program

The Faculty of Health is currently seeking students for a range of volunteer and paid roles within the Peer Mentor Program for Trimester 1/Semester 1 2021.

What is the Peer Mentor Program?

The Faculty of Health Peer Mentor Program matches new students with a peer mentor during the first five weeks of their commencement at Deakin.

A peer mentor is an experienced student within the faculty who can support a new student’s transition into life as a Deakin student. Peer mentors are often matched to students who are studying the same course or similar subjects.

Apply now to volunteer as a peer mentor

Beginning university can feel daunting at first. As a peer mentor, you’ll provide critical support for students in their transition to Deakin and your participation could mean the difference between a positive or negative experience for one of your fellow Health students in their first few weeks at uni.

If you’re interested in acting as a positive influence and role model for new students while gaining relevant employment experience to boost your CV, then apply now to become a peer mentor!

Applications for Trimester 1/Semester 1 2021 peer mentors are now open. Applications will close Friday 16 October. If you have any questions about becoming a peer mentor, visit the Faculty of Health website or email [email protected].

We’re also seeking Senior Peer Mentors and Support Officers

In addition to recruiting volunteers as peer mentors, we’re also looking to employ established Faculty of Health students in several paid positions within the Peer Mentor Program for T1/S1 2021.

We are now accepting applications for the following roles:

Please see the Faculty of Health website for more information about each role and to submit your application via the relevant EOI form. Applications close 16 September.

We look forward to meeting you!

Taking part in the Peer Mentor Program is a great way to gain leadership skills and employment experience while also meeting new people who are studying towards a career in the health sector. Let us know if you have any questions about the Peer Mentor Program via [email protected] and we look forward to receiving your applications soon!
