Student Success Programs has many opportunities for current UTC students to become employed as SSP Peer Mentors. We use Peer Mentors to help staff Moc Up, MOC Academy, First Year Experience, and First Gen Mocs programming. These are paid positions. Throughout the year, SSP Peer Mentors may also be asked to volunteer to staff certain First-Year Experience-related events, such as Read to Achieve’s First Class and Mocs Flock Finley.
