RAPP Peer Leaders

Peer Leaders are a select and incredible group of UC students who serve as mentors to current members in RAPP intensives.  

Peer Leaders largely identify their own goals for what they'd like to get out of the process and what they'd like to do in the year.  Some Peer Leaders work on developing facilitation skills, others focus on helping RAPPers build relationships, and still others focus on supporting others through challenging points and more.  All Peer Leaders engage in on-going learning related to diversity and social justice with the group in which they're working.

Peer Leaders participate in initial and on-going training to support their experience and development.  They are also recognized for their work with the RAPP Social Justice Peer Educator certificate.

Peer Leaders are selected in late spring throug the application process for formal leadership positions and must meet three criteria:

  • Are a currently enrolled UC student with a 2.3 GPA;
  • Are capable of committing to the time specified for the Peer Leader role which they are pursuing.
  • If applying for a Peer Leader role with the 9-month intensive, have previously completed a RAPP 9-month intensive.
