Peer mentors in this program will consist of upper-class college psychology students who demonstrate significant academic achievement and are interested in assisting other students. The peer mentors will mentee freshman psychology majors who want to: (a) improve their study and time management skills; (b) further their knowledge of psychology careers and graduate school preparation; or (c) increase reading comprehension. Each mentor will focus on one topic area and use a variety of behavior strategies while working with his/her mentees. A multiple probe research design will be used to evaluate this peer-mentoring project.
