Sokolov-Miller Family Financial and Life Skills Center Mentoring Program
Offered through the Sokolov-Miller Family Financial and Life Skills Center, the Mentoring Program pairs current Penn State students with financial literacy and life skills mentors who are affiliated with the University as alumni, faculty, or staff and who have a wealth of professional and personal experience in these topics.
The topics mentors and mentees discuss range from financial aid to budgeting to salary negotiation and more, depending on the kind of support a student needs and the type of knowledge and experience a mentor can provide. The mentoring relationship is intended to fit into students’ busy lives. Interactions can take place through phone, email, Zoom, or in person (in a post-COVID world) — whatever is most convenient for the pair.
The Mentoring Program has now paired 118 students with 62 mentors.
