MOSSAIC Peer Mentoring Opportunity

MOSSAIC (Mentoring, Organization and Social Support for Autism Inclusion on Campus) is a 2-credit Independent Study in the Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences (SPHSC) intended for undergraduate students who are actively interested in self-directed learning. Students must be willing and able to enroll in this Independent Study for three quarters minimum: Autumn 2018 – Spring 2019. Peer Mentors will be paired with a UW undergraduate student with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) based on program recruitment; Ambassadors will participate in program development and outreach.

Mentors occupy a different sort of role than a friend or a tutor does. A peer mentor can be a guide, a coach, and sometimes adviser, someone who has encountered challenges and can share the wisdom of their experiences. Peer mentoring relationships help both students understand how personal identities and goals shape education, extracurricular priorities, and future career choices.
