We're First! First Gen and/or Low-Income Community Mentoring

We’re First! First Generation and/or Low-Income Community Mentoring

"We're First!" is a mentoring program that connects students in the FGLI community with a First Gen-identified faculty or staff member, or First Gen Campus Ally who will follow them throughout their entire Dartmouth career. First Gen Mentors help students become more connected to Dartmouth, while building sense of community and support among the entire First Generation campus population.

Through 1:1 relationships, mentors support students by sharing their own similar experiences, provide perspective on personal and professional growth from a First Gen perspective, help students set goals and build networks, navigate challenges, and celebrate successes.
