Mentor Programs

MassBay is committed to offering opportunities for our students to be mentored by professionals on and off campus and mentor younger students in the community.

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.

For more information about this program, please contact Professor Thomas Niemi:

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.

STEM Mentor Program

The goals of the STEM Mentor Program are to nurture STEM students’ academic success and support students’ pursuit of their academic and career aspirations by facilitating one-on-one mentoring relationships between MassBay STEM students and STEM professionals. Employer partnerships include Sanofi, MathWorks, ABI-LAB, Synspira Therapeutics and more. The program is funded by Sanofi, ABI-LAB, MathWorks, and STEM Starter Academy.
