F.O.R.T.E. recognizes the challenges faced in the first year of college, as well as the difficulties of

re-entry. We are also aware of the value of the socio-economic growth of post-secondary education. A peer mentoring program is crucial to promote successful reintegration and transition. This space is also an opportunity to network with each other while engaging and repairing harm within the community. Individuals who have been marginalized and excluded require a sense of connection and belonging as a vital path to self-empowerment. The goal of the mentor should be one that alleviates cultural shock and helps to navigate the transition process of entering not only society but the academic sphere.
