Leadership Development Program

Freshman Edge Mentors

As a Freshman Edge mentor, you will be one of the first to welcome our incoming freshman students to UCI. In addition to creating a meaningful and supportive program environment, Freshman Edge mentors will help freshman students transition to the UCI campus and college life, and introduce them to campus resources and the UCI social scene. The mentor team consists of undergraduate students who share a passion for serving incoming first-year students, many of which participated in one of our Freshman Edge pathways. These mentors partake in a formal Leadership Development Program beginning in winter quarter as a hands-on leadership development experience. By becoming a Freshman Edge mentor, students give feedback on the past year’s program, develop program events, and work with the students during the upcoming Freshman Edge Program. Additionally, students learn leadership, commitment, responsibility, communication, and decision-making skills from hands-on planning and execution of events.

Mentors are currently being recruited for summer 2019! View the Overview page for more information.
