Rainbow Center F.A.M.I.L.E.E. Mentor Application
The Rainbow Center is so glad you are interested in being a mentor for the F.A.M.I.L.E.E. mentoring program. F.A.M.I.L.E.E. stands for Fostering Academics, Maturity, Independence, Leadership, Empowerment & Excellence. This program is designed to assist students in their first year at UConn--Storrs including regional campus and transfer students who are new to campus with their transition by pairing them with peer mentors.

Expectations of a F.A.M.I.L.E.E. mentor:
- Attend monthly F.A.M.I.L.E.E. Reunions to be scheduled by the selected mentors at the beginning of the fall semester
- Attend at least one Rainbow Center event with mentee each semester outside of the F.A.M.I.L.E.E. events
- Discuss any concerns in bi-monthly meetings with the F.A.M.I.L.E.E. Coordinator
- Everyone is strongly encouraged to spend one-on-one and group time with their mentee, but that dynamic can be defined by each pair.

- Mentors must have at least 2 semesters of experience attending the UConn Storrs campus by the beginning of their first semester in F.A.M.I.L.E.E.
-All students with a student conduct history will be subject to review. Students who are on University Probation at the time of application review are not eligible to interview. Students who were found responsible for any incidents in the current academic year or during the application and interviewing process will not be eligible to interview or continue on in the process.
- Mentors should be strong leaders and ready to actively engage in the Rainbow Center Community with their mentee
- A minimum GPA of 2.75 is strongly recommended.
- Mentors should be allies to all communities of gender identity, gender expression, and sexuality represented at the UConn Rainbow Center
