Wazo Connect is a peer mentorship program for students who are feeling lonely, stressed or overwhelmed who prefer a more informal support system.
Our mentors are trained by CAPS, CARE, GRIT, LGBTQ+ Center and Psychology professors. Additional to that we are working with CAPS and UCLA Housing to reach out to students in need. Mentors meet with their mentees 1-3 hours a week and can accompany them to important appointments and meetings if requested. We also offer bi weekly activities to promote wellness to ALL students interested.
Interested students can sign up to get a peer mentor from our website: https://www.wazoconnect.com/jointhefam/
Sometimes what we are looking for isn’t medicine or therapy but just someone to listen to us and remind us that we are not alone. We are hoping to make all students feel supported and independent and we would appreciate your cooperation.
