International Student Mentoring Program Student Mentors Needed

Posted by Tim on August 4, 2014 in Community Announcements, Networking, Student Clubs, Volunteering, Volunteers Needed

Invitation to Join an International Student Mentoring Program

Are you interested in learning about other cultures?  Would you like to get to know international students better?  Do you want to help someone from another culture?  The International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS) office and UB Counseling Services invite you to participate as a mentor in the International Student Mentoring Program.

We are recruiting Junior and Senior Undergraduate students to participate as mentors for newly arrived international students during the Fall 2014 semester.  You don’t have to know about other cultures, speak other languages or have traveled overseas.  All you need is a sincere desire to help others and an interest in people from other cultural backgrounds.

Here is an overview of the program:

  • Each mentor will be paired with two newly arrived international students.
  • The commitment is for one semester.
  • Mentors must be available to meet with their mentees for one hour every two weeks.  The activity can be as simple as having lunch together, going for coffee or taking a walk, or as elaborate as visiting a local tourist attraction, going to a sports event or having a family dinner in your home.
  • There will be separate half-day training sessions for both mentors and mentees.  Mentors will learn about the mentees’ culture(s), receive valuable information about campus resources available to mentees, and learn tips on how to best interact with someone from another country.
  • There will be an end-of-semester party to celebrate your mentoring accomplishments

It doesn’t take more than one hour to make a difference and learn something new!

If you are interested in joining the International Student Mentoring Program, please complete the mentor application found at the following link:

If you have any questions about the program, please call 645-2258 or email

We look forward to hearing from you and working with you!
