What Is Connect 4 Success?

The C4S program is updating to be in alignment with Guided Pathways and the transformation of developmental education initiative. Look for us in September.

Connect 4 Success Mentoring is a program designed to match students one-to-one with another person to help navigate the college and campus experience. 

Students can be paired with either a Peer Mentor or Faculty/Staff Mentor for extra support throughout the year (depending on availability). 

To get started, choose your level of interest and involvement below!

Students

Students who qualify to participate in Connect 4 Success (C4S) are paired with a mentor who provides one-on-one support for managing the challenges of college.

There are no agendas or set goals; instead, you are encouraged to question, share, and explore ideas with a caring listener. You decide what you want to focus on; your Mentor is there to support you.

Peer Mentor

Peer Mentors are students with more college experience and some training who are willing to assist newer MCC students navigate the college experience.   

If you are compassionate, engaging, have about an hour a week, want to help others get more comfortable with knowing what it's like to be a MCC student and are willing and able to complete C4S Peer Mentor training, this is a super opportunity for you! 

Mentors
