The Immersion Mentor role is a part of the Immersion Leadership Team, working in collaboration with the student Immersion Peer Facilitator. Together, these roles support participants in their immersion experience. The mentor and peer facilitator work closely with the CCSJ or Campus Ministry Assistant Director to plan and implement immersion opportunities that promote local, domestic and global engagement.
In this role, mentors will support and collaborate with peer facilitators to facilitate all immersion experiences before, during, and after travel. Serving as a mentor is a unique opportunity to accompany participants as an educator, a model, and a support. Along with their own learning in relationship with community partners, mentors engage participants in cultivating a commitment to lifelong learning, reflection and action. Mentors provide a multi-generational perspective on community issues and integrate their academic/professional expertise.
