How it Works

The GCC Peer Success Coach program enhances the student experience by matching you to a Peer Success Coach. Students are paired with someone invested in their success — a person ready to listen, inspire, help navigate challenges, and recognize opportunities.

Students can expect to:

  • Set goals for success
  • Create action plans
  • Improve time-management skills
  • Identify essential resources provided by our GCC Campus Community.

As a recent graduate or current student, your Peer Success Coach is familiar with the GCC campus community, opportunities, resources, departments, clubs, programs, and spaces that provide academic support.

Common Topics Students Discuss with their Peer Success Coach

  • How do I balance the demands of school, work, and socializing?
  • How do I get involved in clubs, programs or athletics?
  • How can I set myself up for academic, social, and career success?
  • How do I make connections with peers and professional staff?

Get Matched

Students will be matched with a Peer Success Coach based on common interests, background, academics, and degree or career goals. To get started, students and coaches complete an online survey to paint a holistic picture of their interests and experiences. Students and coaches are encouraged to communicate at least 1-2 times per month. After being matched, you may connect with your Peer Success Coach via videochat, text message, phone call, email, or in-person!
