  • Increase a sense of belonging with a built-in peer support system
  • Initiate early intervention strategies as early as possible
  • Provide an additional touchpoint via weekly follow up
  • Identify barriers prohibiting student success
  • Allow students to see their peers model excellence
  • Assist in the transition between high school and university life
  • Promote healthy classroom behaviors
