Chico Adelante Program

Mentees

As a Wayfinder, you will have the following benefits:

  • Join a group of approximately 10 peers supported by a PeerPlus Graduate mentor. Your Adelante peer group will meet weekly via Zoom, alternative virtual platform, or in-person to share resources and support you in your courses.

  • The Adelante Program will host designated workshops to support you in exploring graduate school and career pathways. You will be required to attend (3) Adelante hosted workshops each semester. We will be tracking attendance at these workshops.

  • You will receive resources connecting you to community engagement events, presentations, and workshops in topics such as: Diversity and Equity, Latinx student support, health and wellness, mental health, financial literacy, and study skills. The majority of these events and workshops will be hosted through partner programs and departments. Participation will be optional, but is highly recommended for your success.

  • You will have access to the Blackboard Community: Adelante Wayfinders Mentoring Program, containing a schedule of all presentations, resources, and web links to events and workshops.

  • You will be supported through the Wildcat Scholarships Application and the Adelante Summer Researcher application, which if selected, supports you as a paid Adelante Researcher to work with a faculty research mentor developing a significant research project aligned with your post-college plans and interests.

    Eligibility:

  • Sophomores, juniors, or seniors in good academic standing
  • Latinx and/or low income
