About the F.L.Y. Peer Ambassador Program
The Multicultural Center is proud to host the F.L.Y. Peer Ambassador Program (Fortify the Leader in You)! The F.L.Y. Peer Ambassador Program was created to connect incoming freshman and transfer students to the University of North Texas by providing them with mentors who are upperclassmen.
Empirical studies reveal that mentorship programs greatly assist students with their transition into college life, build their social and leadership skills, and assure a secure path towards graduation. The F.L.Y. Peer Ambassador Program is an excellent way for any student to fulfill their academic and campus life needs and interests. It builds community, promotes student involvement, and encourages positive progress in their academic, social, and personal achievements.
The F.L.Y. Peer Ambassador Programs are focused on 6 key areas:
- Academic Development
- Cultural Awareness
- Career and Professional Development
- Community Service
- Leadership Development
- Social Relationship Development
Some of our fun activities include game nights, community service projects, sporting events, study groups, and much more! We would love for you to participate with us!
