Skyler with studentOur Student Mentors are volunteers that assist new students' transition to life at FLC and Durango. Our mentors have an opportunity to make an long-lasting impact on the lives of first-year SOBA students by using their own college experiences and sharing do's and don'ts on how to be a successful college student. As part of the SOBA Mentoring community, junior and senior mentors will participate in leadership activities that will assist with developing events and activities for their mentee's.
