Volunteering as an S2S Mentor

An S2S Mentor is a volunteer who works with one or two others (from the same course wherever possible) to welcome a group of up to 25 students arriving in TCD for the first time. Mentors meet with their groups during Freshers' Week, help everyone in the group get to know each other and host a question and answer session followed by a campus tour. They then arrange for a minimum of 5 social meet-ups within the first term and maintain regular contact with their groups through email, and through Facebook wherever possible.

If you are considering volunteering as an S2S Mentor you can sign up using our online application form - make sure you select a date and time you're available for training during your application, as this is likely to be the training session you're offered! (Dates are normally organised from Jan - May every year).
