You’ll have a team of 13 other Peer Leaders to bounce ideas off of and network with. All of these teammates will be upper-year School of Accounting and Finance students just like you! This is a great opportunity to gain leadership skills in a supportive, safe space.

2. The role is only 5 hours per week on average.

We know that academics, extracurriculars, money and sleep…and Netflix are all important. Do it all with the Peer Leader role! Earn some cash, while still having the time to focus on everything else that is an important part of your University experience.

3. Gain transferable skills for Co-op, the Don role, or other opportunities.

Leadership, academic mentorship, organizational, and time management are just a few of the skills that you can learn or build upon in the Peer Leader role.

5. Network with SAF Faculty and Staff…like a boss.

Thinking about grad school? You’ll need some solid reference letters from faculty and staff in your program. We can help you network confidently with Faculty and Staff to support you and your mentees.
