S2S is a student-led initiative designed to ensure any student in Trinity can get information and support from another student, find a friendly face to have a chat, talk things through or just ask a few questions when you're not sure who to approach.
S2S offers Mentors to every incoming undergraduate honors degree student and visiting student in the College in groups who continue to support them throughout the year.
S2S also delivers the Peer Support programme – skilled one-to-one listening and support for all undergraduate and postgraduate students in Trinity College, available on request.
Approximately seven hundred S2S volunteers are trained and supported in their roles annually by staff in the S2S office, and have the option of becoming members of the S2S society. They are given further opportunities to engage in leadership and decision-making roles, facilitating the enhancement of their graduate attributes and career-readiness skills.
The S2S staff have a combined experience of over twenty five years in volunteer training, peer engagement, community development and active listening and support work. Along with Student Counselling and Student Learning Development, S2S collaborates closely with the Transition to Trinity Officer, the Senior Tutor’s Office and the Students’ and Graduate Students’ Unions to enhance Trinity’s student experience and to develop an inclusive campus community.
