The TCC peer leader position is open for applications until April 12. 

The peer leader role helps incoming TCC students with registration and navigating resources the college provides.

The program tallies how many events the peer leader attends. If they attend every event, they can earn $500 per semester in scholarship money, student activities coordinator Cara Walker said.

The role requires a 2.0 GPA. The student must enroll in at least six credit hours for the 2021–2022 academic year, attend mandatory training over the summer and have completed 12 semester hours at TCC by May 2021.


“Before this role, I barely knew how to work a computer,” peer leader Lauren Maenza-Oliver said.

 Being a peer leader gave her new typing and computer skills that rolled over to her current job, she said. Maenza-Oliver said she loves the position and has used it to get into other leadership roles and national organizations within TCC. 

 Walker started as a student and orientation leader at the University of North Texas, which made her discover her career path in student affairs, she said. 


Peer leaders are seen as the people who can speak to the student body, so they are actively recruited for other positions on the campus, Walker said.
