In Summer 2021, the online Skidmore Pre-College Program will be supported by virtual Community Mentors to foster a sense of community and enhance the online experience for students. The primary role of a Community Mentor is to assist pre-college students with their transition to college-level coursework and guide students in creating a positive learning environment and respectful, inclusive community. Under the direction of the Pre-College Director, staff in this position serve as mentors and role models; plan and oversee co-curricular activities; provide information about college resources; offer academic and social support; inform students about policies and procedures; and enforce policies/standards of conduct. Pre-College students are primarily minors under the age of 18; thus, staff assume significant responsibility for the behavior and well-being of students. This position is part-time: 10-15 hours per week, primarily weekday evenings, possibly weekends. Community Mentors are supervised by the Head Community Mentor, and report to the Pre-College Director.

• Participate in virtual staff training between June 28-July 2, 2021.
