September 3, 2020 10:10 AM

In coordination with the First-Generation Workgroup, Off-Campus Student Services is incredibly excited to announce the First-Generation Peer Mentoring Program (FGPMP). 

FGPMP is designed to support the success of current first-time and full-time first-generation students at UMBC. Students that take part in this program can expect to meet other first-generation students and become a part of a large, supportive community that works to share resources, find lasting friendships and connections, and create an impactful college experience. 

Participants of the FGPMP will also have the opportunity to take part in a series of activities and workshops designed to enrich students both personally and professionally. 

Some additional benefits of taking part in the FGPMP include:

  • Developing transferable and marketable skills to enhance professional experience

  • Cultivation of leadership, self-management, and organizational skills

  • Improved communication and interpersonal skills

  • Greater self-efficacy and self-awareness

  • An increased network of support

  • Expanding your resume

If you would like to be a part of the FGPMP, please click here to fill out the application. The application deadline is Tuesday, September 15, 2020 at 5:00 PM. 

If you have any questions, please contact Dr. M. Antonio Silas at Thank you and we look forward to connecting with you!
