Peer Mentoring Program » Home


The Akins High School Counseling & Mental Health (CMH) Internship program has a partnership with the Akins Student Support Services Office.  CMH students are now certified in Peer Mentoring.

 These Social Services CMH Interns are now available to mentor freshman or sophomore students on campus.

Who might benefit from Peer Mentoring?


Students struggling with the following:

  • Transition from middle school to high school (freshmen)
  • Organization and study skills
  • Social struggles with peers
  • Family issues (minor)
  • Stress relating to the school environment
Mentors meet with students during non-academic time (advisory, lunch, before or after school).
