  • STARS Peer Mentors Program. The STARS Program matches our STARS I first-year students with upperclassmen who serve as peer mentors to them during their first year at Yale.  Mentors help orient students to the different resources available to them as STARS fellows, especially the STARS study sessions. Peer Mentors help support the first-year cohort by offering advice and guidance and are, therefore, asked to meet with the first-years individually and as a group. Students interested in the mentor position must complete a STARS Peer Mentors Program application (DOC) by midnight on Sunday, April 26, 2020. Selections will be made before the end of the school year.
