F.A.M.I.L.E.E. Mentor Program

F.A.M.I.L.E.E. Mentor Program

Fostering Academics, Maturity, Independence, Leadership, Empowerment & Excellence (F.A.M.I.L.E.E.) pairs new students with continuing students during their first or transfer year, involving group activities and one-on-one meetings. Mentor and mentee pairs will meet once a month, at a minimum, to check in and grow together. Additionally, all mentors and mentees meet once per month for a FAMILEE meeting. Finally, students have the opportunity to take on leadership positions in the organization to help plan events and programs for FAMILEE participants.

If you are coming to the UConn-Storrs campus for your first year (first-year and transfer students), apply to be a Rainbow Center mentee in the F.A.M.I.L.E.E. Mentoring Program by visiting the link here.

While most of our program participants identify within the LGBTQIA+ community, it is not a requirement for participation. If you have questions about this program, the application process, etc. please email Julia Anderson (she/her/hers) at julia@uconn.edu.

Attend the Rainbow Center’s FAMILEE Mentoring Program Interest Meeting on August 30th, 6-7 pm, in the Rainbow Center Main Lounge.
