Peer Jacks mentoring
Making connections and building community at NAU
Exclusively for out-of-state students attending Northern Arizona University, the Peer Jacks peer mentoring program helps freshmen successfully transition to university and Flagstaff life.
Peer Jacks offers 1-on-1 peer mentoring to first-year students and exposure to NAU resources.
