Become a Mayor’s Commission Scholar at Peirce College

The mentoring program engages successful adult learners to serve as mentors to newer adult learners, providing them with guidance and support that will allow them to follow in their mentor’s success! Mentors gain the opportunity to help a neighbor while reflecting on their own success and earning skills and experiences they can add to their resume—as well as $1500 towards college!

Peer Mentors make a commitment to 6 months of volunteer service following program requirements, which include:

Upon completion of 6 months of the program, mentors become Certified Mentors and are eligible for a $1500 scholarship to Peirce College! This scholarship is renewable yearly for each 6 months of service as a mentor, and it can be used toward an in-person or online class at Peirce and does not require full-time enrollment.

Peer mentors are adult learners who have already had some success in adult education—this partnership with Peirce College allows The Mayor’s Commission on Literacy and provider agencies to encourage and enable them to continue taking steps on their journey of lifelong learning!

For more information on the Mentoring Program or the Peirce College Scholarship, contact Emily Lindauer, Mentor Program Coordinator, at 215-686-5249 or lindauere@freelibrary.org.
