DNA Peer Mentorship Program 

The Bard Peer Mentoring Program is a year-long mentoring program at Bard High School Early College Queens (BHSECQ) that pairs 9th and 10th grade students with students in the college program. The goal of the Peer Mentoring Program is to provide high school students with guidance, support and friendship that will help them succeed academically, socially and emotionally. Peer Mentors, who are current students in the college program, will meet regularly with their mentees, providing them with the resources and tools to successfully navigate BHSECQ.
