Some of our current mentoring programs and initiatives:
Business Mentoring Program (BMP)
The Business Mentoring Program (BMP) is a collaboration with MassBay’s Business Department. Professional mentors with experience in the subject content embed in business courses to provide students with connecting course concepts with real world experiences. Mentors work with students directly, both individually and in small groups, with the instructor facilitating the engagement.

Multicultural Mentor Program
We believe that the path to professional success is paved through impactful mentoring relationships. MassBay’s Multicultural Mentor Program (MMP) empowers college students by cultivating meaningful connections with experienced professionals in their fields of interest, fostering career development, and nurturing community engagement for success in an ever-evolving workforce. Diversity and inclusivity are at the core of our program. We embrace individuals of all identities and backgrounds. By creating an environment that celebrates and values these differences, we strive to enhance the potential for growth and success for each MassBay student.

Peer to Peer Mentor Program
The Peer to Peer Mentor Program at MassBay Community College links first-year college students with an experienced second-year student who will serve as a mentor. Peer mentors are trained to assist students on a variety of academic and non-academic topics. They will support first-year students in becoming acclimated to MassBay campus and culture. Peer mentors work collaboratively to engage students in activities that increase their peers’ involvement in a positive college experience.
