Stay on Track is a program to enhance students’ learning and wellness skills through a peer-to peer approach. Current upper-level undergraduate and graduate students who are motivated and in good academic standing will directly support undergraduate peers who need mentoring in their learning journey.
For TLS to be able to offer the Stay on Track program, Academic Student Coaches are key partners in order to have the initiative running.
As an Academic Student Coach, you will accompany participating students as a mentor during the Winter 2022 term. This is a paid position and involves receiving a mandatory comprehensive training covering learning strategies and basic coaching skills. It requires steady commitment to the number of students you are paired to work with. You will become part of the Stay on Track team, with bi-weekly Community of Practice meetings to share experiences, learn from others, and work together on challenges. Time commitment can be up to an average of 5 hours per week.
