Princeton University Mentoring Program is now recruiting mentors for the 2016-2017 academic year!!​

If you have ever felt confused or overwhelmed at Princeton or have benefited from a mentorship experience on campus, now is the time to take on that mentor role for an incoming Princetonian by joining PUMP!! You can help them navigate campus and make their transition into campus life a lot easier!

PUMP is a mentorship program which offers mentoring services and resources for students of color at Princeton. Under the Carl A. Fields Center, we receive direct administrative support to develop activities and event programming for our community of mentors and mentees. Our mission is to enrich and support the lives of students through leadership, mentoring, and community building.

PUMP matches each first year participant with a mentor from the sophomore, junior or senior class based on similar academic and social interests. The combination of one-on-one and cluster mentoring is designed to support students and also encourage them to contribute to the general Princeton University community.

We are revamping the program next year to include more study breaks, cultural events, family dinner outings, connections to scholarship/internship resources, and cool NEW GEAR!!!

For more information or questions please contact us at CAF@princeton.edu
