Become a Peer Mentor
Multicultural Peer Advisors are trained as paraprofessional advisors and assist us with all of our events. Multicultural Peers also serve as liaisons to different organizations on campus and perform active outreach activities. In addition, they coordinate events of their own, work as part of a team and serve as representatives of The Evergreen State College.
We hire every spring for the following year. The position works with your class schedule and is designed with you being a student first. These jobs are for folks with a variety of experience and interest but if you feel you’re drawn to being a change agent and community leader with us please apply.
