International Peer Mentor Program

The International Peer Mentor Program is a volunteer program where current Linfield students act as guides and connectors for incoming international students. Mentors help students learn about their new environment, prepare for their time at Linfield and adjust to the new settings. International Peer Mentors are provided training to help them refine their intercultural communication and leadership skills as part of the program.

Recruitment for the 2023-2024 school year will begin in Spring 2023. If you are interested in being a peer mentor in 2023-2024 feel free to email
