MENTORS

Mentorship is an integral part of the PATH program. Mentors provide guidance to students transitioning from SDCCD to UC San Diego.

The mentors are comprised of former PATH Summer Academy participants, who are now current UC San Diego students. Their role is to provide support to students during the course of the program, act as a resource for information, and host optional social activities for the group.
